Axial strain displacement transducers

General description
General description
Potentiometric transducers
Linear potentiometric transducers are used with various testing machines and apparatus as, for example, Consolidation apparatus, Shear testing equipment and Triaxial testing equipment to fit triaxial cells. They feature:
  • Input voltage: 10 V DC
  • Output: from 0 to 10 V DC
  • Repeatability: better than 0.002 mm
  • Accuracy: better than 0.002 mm
  • Connector: 6 pin
LVDT transducers
Used in the Dynamic triaxial systems. They feature:
  • Input voltage: 10 V DC
  • Nominal sensitivity: 165 mV/mm
  • Resolution: infinite
  • Linearity: 0.50%
  • Connector: 6 pin
All the above transducers are supplied  with mounting block but have to be completed with the appropriate mounting bracket for connection to triaxial cells. See accessories.

Calibration devices for linear axial transducers
Basically consist of a stainless steel frame with two holders: one for the transducer  and the other for the micrometer gauge head. The holder can receive transducers having nominal diameter of 8, 12, 19, 22 mm, or 18 mm square. Two versions available: 30-WF0652 with mechanical micrometer and 30-WF0653 with digital micrometer. On request they can be supplied complete with traceable calibration certificate. This version is identified by the suffix  /C after the code number. Ex. 30-WF0652/C.
  • Max. travel: 25 mm
  • Resolution: 0.001 mm
