The usual 150C maximum operating temperature won’t cut it in many military and defense applications. For those who need to make position measurements in ranges of ±0.05″ to ±10″ [±1.25 mm to ±250 mm] at operating temperatures up to 400°F (200°C), Macro Sensors HSTAR 750 Series Hermetically Sealed Position Sensors could provide the solution.
In addition to their maximum operating temperature of 200C, the 3/4 inch (19 mm) diameter AC-operated LVDTs are environmentally sealed to IEC IP-68, so they can handle rugged application requirements.
The design targets the harsh environments found in military and defense applications such as fuel / oil level monitoring, load leveling of artillery platforms and controlling flight surfaces of airplanes and rudder positions of aircraft carriers, tankers, ships as well as submarines.
