In elevator applications, Macro Sensors Spring Loaded LVDT position sensors measure the spring deflection as a result of the load. The sensors’ springs compress as an elevator is loaded with passengers to ensure that both cars and building floors properly align for each floor. Depending upon the elevator manufacturer, sensors are mounted either under or above the elevator car.
The hermetically-sealed s (IEC IP-68) sensors are designed and manufactured for rugged applications enabling them to survive heavy shocks as well as the effects of dirt, water, steam and other corrosive elements without effecting performance. They are offered in stroke ranges of ±0.050” to ±-2.0” (±1.25 mm to ±50 mm) in both AC and DC input/output configurations.
