Linear Position Sensor Engineered for Valve Position Detection Applications in Steam Turbine Control Systems

Alliance Sensors Group introduces its PG Series LVDT linear position sensors. Features built into the design of the PG Series LVDTs include non-detachable core connection/operating rod, installation specifications (such as standard body clamps, flange mounts, ball couplings and rod eye ends) two dual-contact shaft seals that prevent contaminants from entering the LVDT bore, no connector thanks to a sensor with screw terminals that accept 24-14 AWG wires, continuous sensor operation up to 350 degrees F (175 C), and finally, built-in over-temperature indication and two-year warranty.

Rugged design ensured by a large diameter, thick-walled enclosure

LVDT sensors feature a versatile mounting configuration and a large diameter, thick-walled housing. The control rod is 3/8 inch in diameter and contains the core so it cannot vibrate or come loose. This rod is available with a rigid or ball coupling to accommodate installations where the mounting mechanism on steam valves has a slight misalignment. The materials used and the manufacturing processes can be certified for low radiation environments such as boiling water nuclear power plants. Five full scale ranges from 0 to 3 to 0 to 15 inches (75 to 380 mm) are offered. Models include the PGHD Heavy Duty Series LVDT with a 1-1/16-inch diameter body and the PGSD Super Duty Series LVDT with a 1-5/16-inch diameter body.
