DCTH Series compact short stroke LVDTs from RDP Electrosense are ideal for use in specialty machines,
industrial control systems, material testing, civil/structural engineering, and general purpose testing/instrumentation. They provide excellent linearity (with options to 0.1 percent max) and repeatability, and are specifically designed for easy interface with control systems and digital/analog conversions. This unit operates from commonly available dc power supplies of 20 to 24V single ended or +10 to +20V dual dc output. Units require no additional signal conditioning. The DCTH offers four measuring ranges up to 0.8 inches (20 mm) and selectable voltage output of 0 to 10V uni-polar or +5V bipolar all in a short body length. The DCTH Series LVDTs are available in spring operation and free, unguided armature versions. RDP Electrosense http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-537
