The LZ-25 Series of LVIT (Linear Variable Inductance Transducer) position sensors are contactless devices designed for frictionless measurement in factory automation or assembly machinery applications where space is a premium, as well as for external mounting on hydraulic cylinders to sense rod position. The LVIT is offered in nominal full scale ranges from 50 to 900 mm (2 to 36 inches) with an excellent stroke-to-length ratio, so that the sensor’s overall length is only 38 mm (1.5 inches) longer than the linear range of the unit. The sensor has a 25.4 mm (1 inch) outside diameter aluminum or optional stainless steel body with a 1m radial cable for I/O connections. The 7.5 mm (0.295 inch) diameter through-bore of an LZ-25 provides clearance for its 6.35 mm (0.25 inch) diameter moving rod, which is made of the same material as its housing. This through-bore feature also means that the sensor is not subject to damage from typical mechanical overstroking.
