AutomationDirect adds Inductive Linear Position Transducers

AutomationDirect adds Inductive Linear Position Transducers

Linear Variable Inductance Transducers (LVITs) from Alliance Sensors Group convert the linear displacement of an object into a proportional electrical signal output of 0-10V or 4-20mA (depending on model). LVITs are contactless devices designed for dimension or position measuring applications where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured.
