NC-LVDT NC-LVDT, Non-Contact, Displacement Sensor

Ideal for difficult sensing applications, the Non-Contact LVDT measures the displacement and proximity of a customer-supplied metal target without physical contact. The measurement is unaffected by interposed nonmetallic, non-conductive materials, such as polymers and biomaterials. The stainless shell houses two coils; one for sensing and one for temperature compensation. This assembly is potted into the stainless housing using high-grade, vacuum-pumped epoxy and includes integral strain relief. This packaging allows the sensor to be used in applications requiring long-term immersion in water or saline solutions.

Use Cases

Inline Process Verification

Rugged, environmentally insensitive sensors are ideally suited for integration into a multitude of in-line production process verification tasks.

Miniature size allows access to nearly any feature.

Many “standard” features can be customized to fit a specific application:

  • custom calibrated stroke ranges
  • modified body or core lengths
  • hermetic or “pressure-equalized” versions

Machine Displacement Feedback

Miniature sensors allow for integration into complex mechanical assemblies for displacement feedback of mechanical grippers, relative position of targets and closed loop position control.

Adjustable filtering allows for high bandwidth which enables quick feedback and responsive machine control systems.

Test & Measurement

Multiple sizes, stroke lengths, accuracy, and filter settings provide sensors for every test and measurement application.

Calibrated displacement systems shortens startup time and ensures accurate results out of the box.

Integration with our wireless sensors (V-Link-200 for example) enables rapid integration and the added features of SensorConnect and/or SensorCloud.







SensorConnect is the next generation in desktop sensing software.

From configuration of nodes and starting networks, to collecting and analyzing data in real-time, SensorConnect provides a modern, powerful experience with our Wireless, Inertial, and Displacement products.
