WayCon Launches Miniature LVDT with 4mm Diameter Housing and IP65 Protection Class

The LVISM is one of the smallest LVDT sensors of its kind, with a 4mm Diameter Housing and measurement ranges up to ±5mm By Phoebe Grinter / 20 May 2021

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik GmbH has launched a new series of miniature LVDT displacement sensors, the LVISM. With a housing diameter of only 4mm and a length of 70mm, the LVISM is one of the smallest LVDT sensors of its kind.

The LVISM series offers measuring ranges of up to ±5 mm with an accuracy of up to ±0.25%, an IP65 protection class, and an operating temperature range of -25 to +85 °C.

LVDT displacement sensors are ideal for absolute measurements in harsh environmental conditions. Due to their inductive measuring principle, they operate wear-free and are very durable. They are used in all industrial sectors from manufacturing to research.

Connected to external electronics, the LVISM miniature sensor outputs an analog signal of 0 to 10 V or 4 to 20 mA, allowing for connection directly to a control or display device. WayCon offers a practical solution for this with the LVC cable electronics. The LVC has a compact housing (6 x 3.5 cm) and is permanently connected to the sensor cable. Alternatively, the external electronics LVA can be used, which is suitable for safe mounting on a DIN rail.
