LVDT Ratios and Mounts
Blog 1/19/2011 Post a comment Engineers might think that the nature of an LVDT means they can move a core outside the LVDT during measurements, but they cannot. The core must remain within the sensor.
LVDTs Go the Distance
Blog 1/4/2011 Post a comment Distance-measuring sensors range from precise laser interferometers to simple potentiometers, but for linear distance measurements in industrial equipment and testing apparatus, a linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) proves difficult to beat.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
