The LVDT induSENSOR range of linear inductive displacement sensors has external electronics and a plunger that moves freely in the sensor housing.
The induSENSOR LDR series linear inductive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon have a short, compact design with a small diameter.
The Micro-Epsilon boreCONTROL miniature confocal sensor with a diameter of 3.3mm can now be used for measuring bore holes with diameters of 4.0mm or higher. The sensor, which is rotated by an electric servomotor, can be used to measure a number of bore-hole characteristics, for example the diameter, roundness, concentricity, tapers and straightness.
