RDP Electronics’ rugged MTS R Series analogue transducers are suited to a range of industrial applications that require a direct analogue output for continuous measurement of displacement and speed.

The magnetostrictive principle permits absolute, contact-free position measurement combining various magneto-mechanical effects with precise speed measurement of an ultrasonic wave.

Integral signal processing electronics accommodated in the sensor head can be selected for a range of standard analogue outputs: 0 to 10V, +/-10V, 4 to 20mA and 0 to 20mA.

There is the option for user-configurable variations, for example to set to 1 to 9V over a portion of the nominal measuring range.

With linearity of +/-0.01per cent FS (+/-50um best) and 16-bit resolution of 0.0015 per cent (or 1um best), the R Series accuracy and repeatability of measurement.

A hand-held programming device allows simple reconfiguration to be achieved.

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).
