Bestech Australia has added a new spring loaded version to their range of linear positioning sensors.

Linear Variable Inductive Transducers or LVITs represent a true disruption in the industrial position sensing industry by merging the benefits of contactless inductive sensing and the low cost of contact based technologies. LVITs are contactless devices designed for factory automation and a variety of heavy duty industrial or commercial applications such as solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brakes, chute or gate positioners on off-road or agri-vehicles, bridge expansion and rail sun kink monitoring, robotic arm position feedback, snow plow positioning, automotive/ motor sports, and packaging equipment.

Bestech’s spring loaded LVITs from ASG feature a compact yet robust design, deliver superior performance and excellent stroke-to-length ratio, and are ideal for both industrial and OEM position sensing applications.

Key features of LVITs include contactless operation preventing wear-out from dither or cycling; 12.5 to 450 mm (1/2 to 18 inches) range; radial cable exit version supplied with swivel rod eye ends; four analogue outputs; axial termination versions with M-12 connector or 1m cable; and ASG's proprietary SenSet field scalability.

LRS-18 Spring Loaded LVIT

Featuring a ¾” OD aluminium body, the spring loaded LRS-18 is offered in a 12.5mm to 100mm range and is ideal for OEM and factory automation applications where small size and low cost are favoured. However, the probe cannot be hard fixed to the measurand.

LR-19 Automation Duty LVIT

The LR-19 has a ¾” OD aluminium body and is offered in ranges up to 200mm. The LR-19 is ideal for OEM and factory automation applications where small size and low cost are a premium.

LR-27 Industrial Duty LVIT

More robust than the LR-19, the LR-27 series is offered in a 1” OD aluminium or stainless steel housing. The LR-27 is also suitable for industrial OEM and factory automation applications where the application or environment is too extreme for the LR-19.

LV-45 Extreme Duty LVIT

The LV-45 series units are built to survive the most extreme environments such as installations on bridges, train tracks, and in off-road vehicles for construction and agriculture.
