Eddy Current Probes
Eddy-Current sensors are non contact devices capable of high-resolution measurement of the position and/or change of position of any conductive target. Eddy-Current sensors are useful in any application requiring the measurement or monitoring of the position of a conductive target, especially in a dirty environment. High resolution and tolerance of dirty environments make eddy-current sensors indispensable in today's modern industrial operations.
The Eddy Current Probe consists of a precision-wound copper coil inside a chemical- and temperature-resistant PEEK tip. This is mounted on a threaded stainless steel rod for easy gap adjustment or a flat, low-profile mount. It is supplied with 1m of integral over braided coaxial cable. Operates up to 180ËšC. Operating gap depends on the tip diameter. Can be used with any driver.
Current output drivers give a 4-20mA output directly proportional to the measured component and allow direct connection to PLCs and other industrial controllers. Can be used with any probe type.
