Developed for use in marine environments, the SS transducer series from RDP Electronics is suited for a range of structural monitoring applications.

The SS Series is sea water protected and typically used for the structural monitoring of ship deck boards, but also widely used for strain measurement and positional measurement of many types of structures on the sea bed, including sub-sea structures such as those restraining pipes and for bridges.

The SS series transducers are fully constructed from 316 stainless steel and by employing a through bore ensure there are no cavities for marine growth and other organisms to impede the movement of the transducer.

Thanks to a robust design and very thick case the SS transducers are also well equipped to withstand longer exposure to the rigours of corrosive marine applications.

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).
