User-friendly LVDT signal conditioner

05 January 2023

NewTek Sensor Solutions can offer a user-friendly signal conditioner that pairs with AC-operated linear and rotary position sensors to deliver feedback in DC voltage, current and digital outputs for use in factory automation, materials testing, packaging, and dimensional gaging applications.

The DIN-rail mountable signal conditioner features LED front panel null indicators and push buttons to set zero and full-scale output positions. With simple setup instructions printed on the unit’s label and colour-coded removable terminal blocks, the signal conditioner can be configured in minutes even by non-technical personnel. Units offer automatic excitation synchronisation for multiple unit systems.

The NTC-6000 diagnoses and indicates linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) failures, disconnects or short circuits for rapid problem resolution. Cybersecurity lockout and tamper detection ensures its safekeeping in locations without supervision. It incorporates a two-wire RS-485 digital communications port and offers hot swapability so setup can be saved and reloaded via the RS-485 port. Digital outputs can include CAN Bus, Modbus, RS-485, and more.

Units are suited to use with AC-operated linear and rotary position sensors in harsh environments including high pressure, extreme temperature and radiation. A ratiometric version measures the difference of the output over the sum to improve sensor performance over large temperature variations.
