The new Series LLS60X from Stellar Technology is a high performance long stroke LVDT displacement transducer with a spring return armature. The armature is restrained and guided by an ultra-low friction bearing assembly and the internal spring automatically positions the armature to its full extension. This design is used where it is not possible to connect the transducer armature to the moving part being measured.

Stellar Technology offers the Series LSU61X short stroke precision LVDT, ideally suited for applications where dynamic measurement is needed but space is limited. This DC/DC displacement sensor operates from unregulated power supplies of +24 Vdc to +40 Vdc or dual ±12 Vdc to ±20 Vdc. Model LSU61X utilizes an internal amplifier to generate a ±5 Vdc output signal and the internal electronics include a filter circuit. The armature covers a stroke from ±0.10 to ±0.40 inches and is loose-fit (unguided) in the bore of the LVDT. Precise alignment along the bore produces a frictionless movement and long sensor life.

Features NPT Threads, Amplified Output

Stellar Technology Inc, offers the new Model FT29XX amplified pressure transducer. This rugged all-welded stainless steel sensor combines a standard NPTmale process connection with a flush diaphragm.  In addition, the FT29XX pressure transmitter is designed with internal signal conditioning. Customers can select 4-20mA current outputs, numerous voltage outputs, as well as digital outputs including RS232, RS485, and CANbus. The unique design of the isolation diaphragm reduces stress levels normally caused by torquing a tapered thread into the mating fitting. The FT29XX introduces zero dead volume to the fixturing and resists the accumulation of residue that can clog traditional pressure ports. The sensing element is machined from a single piece of steel, making the FT29XX insensitive to shock and vibration. This unit is ideal for metering and dispensing operations, for the application of sealants and paints, or anywhere a flush diaphragm unit is desired.
