LVDTs are the go-to sensors for a multitude of industries looking for a highly reliable, long life (MTBF - Mean Time Between Failure) durable, and efficient solution. LVDTs have high accuracy, offer fast response time and low maintenance, all of which make it easier to manage them while they are in use. Given all of these advantages, what are the limitations of an LVDT?
Let’s take a closer look at how LVDT sensors work and if they are right for your operation.
The key advantage of a LVDT is that they are frictionless, so no parts can rub together or wear out. Because of this, there’s usually no contact between the LVDT's core and coil structure, giving it a long mechanical life. This factor is significant in high-reliability LVDT applications in aircrafts, satellites, space vehicles, and nuclear installations. It is also highly desirable in many industrial process control and factory automation systems. Here are the other advantages:
As we know, LVDT sensors are known for being a highly versatile solution -- especially for aerospace and medical industries. However, these two specific industries can occasionally have some special factors that determine what sort of equipment can be used. Here are two extenuating factors to consider when questioning if LVDTs are right for your operation:
If your operation has one of these extreme cases, these are the disadvantages of LVDTs, and in these cases LVDTs may not be the right solution.
