RDP Electronics has launched its E Series range of sensors, which are suited for even basic applications.

The E Series is said to retain the performance of the R and G Series.

Due to the adoption of magnetostrictive technology, the E Series is immune to problems typically associated with linear potentiometers such as noisy output and unreliability that compromise applications and adversely affect the cost of ownership.

The EH type is suited for in-cylinder applications and, featuring a compact electronics housing, is suited for clevis-mounted cylinders.

The EP type has a profile construction suitable for general automation and industrial applications.

In the ER type, the moving part is a central rod.

Rear-end and rod-end bearings can be fitted, making the sensor well suited to replace many types of potentiometer.

RDP Electronics – experts in measurement solutions

Measurement experts RDP Electronics Ltd have 45 years experience in developing transducers for a diverse range of applications in research, prototype testing, industrial plant and machinery, or embodied in products. Examples are numerous, spanning industries that include aerospace, automotive, structural engineering and power generation. The company is responsible for the development and manufacture of a comprehensive programmme of transducer products and associated electronics to recognised international standards for accurate and reliable measurement of displacement, load, pressure and torque. Often the best solutions have a simple elegance that is possible thanks in part to the quality and high reliability of the transducers they supply. Because of their knowledge and expertise RDP’s skilled engineering team is frequently invited to propose solutions to measurement challenges.

RDP Design, manufacture and market a wide range of LVDT and other displacement transducers. LVDT Displacement transducers accurately measure position and displacement. The strength of the LVDT is in its principle of operation. As LVDT sensors are inductive, there is no electrical connection across the sensing element ensuring clean data and a long life.

The LVDT operation principle lends itself to use in extreme environments. LVDTs can be made to work submerged in sea water, in temperatures of 600°C (1100°F) in high nuclear ratiation and at pressures of up to 2000bar (30,000psi).
