The ILAT Series Miniature LVDT Sensors of Inelta provide precision measurement of position and path in the range of single-digit millimeters. The sensors of this series are available in Models ILAT 2, ILAT4 and ILAT10 for the exact measurement of ±1 mm, ±2 mm or ±5 mm traveling distances. Owing to their tiny dimensions with a housing length of 79 mm and a diameter of only 8 mm at a weight of 30 g (including cable), the sensors will navigate even within very tight fitting conditions.
Because of the inductive LVDT principle (Linear Variable Differential Transformer), in which a coil within the sensor with a primary winding and two secondary windings will transform the linear motions of the measuring sensor contact-free into a single electronic signal, the ILAT Sensors operate free from wear and reach a linearity tolerance of <0.25%. They are also available featuring a linearity tolerance even smaller, at <0.1%.
Even with their tiny dimensions, the ILAT Sensors are distinguished by their robust design with a stainless steel housing in protection class IP65 – optionally also in IP67. Nominal temperature rating is 0° – 70°C. The carefully designed linear guiding operates by virtue of a locking mechanism of the probe and outlasts more than 10 million cycles. Therefore the sensors are versatile, suitable for manifold applications, to include medical technology, engineering, agriculture and navigation up to testing facilities or manufacture of special purpose machinery.
Fitting the ILAT Path Sensors are the Inelta external sensor amplifiers IMA2-LVDT, available for signals in the ranges of 0..5V, 0..10V, ±5V, ±10V, 0/4..20mA and ISM-LVDT for 0…10V- or 0..20mA signals. Our print module IVM-LVDT for a readout of 0..10V signals is also available, suitable for integration into your electronics.
Additionally, Inelta can provide custom sensor designs upon demand with further optional features, for example, such as custom-made calibration, cable lengths and expanded temperature ranges.
