Non-contacting RVDT sensors are shock and vibration resistant

The RV Series of rotary variable differential transformer (RVDT) position sensors (photo) offer highly accurate angular displacement measurement of rotating elements, such as quarter-turn ball and butterfly valves, actuators, throttlers and tensioners. With a shaft that rotates a full 360 deg with no stops and virtually no friction, these rotary position sensors measure shaft-angle position over a nominal range of±30 deg. The sensors’ non-contacting design enables a long operational life by eliminating components that wear or degrade over time. The devices are shock and vibration tolerant, even when operating in hostile conditions. Units operate over a temperature range of –65 to 220°F and exhibit a linearity error of less than 0.5% of full range. — NewTek Sensor Solutions, Pennsauken, N.J.
