The measured values of the LVDT digital controller from eddylab can be visualized and configured with the help of the eddyMOTION LVDT analysis software specially developed by eddylab. As a perfect match for the digital electronics, the software tool offers the user the functions oscilloscope and data logger.
The software is available as a free download from the eddylab website
The main challenge when using inductive displacement transducers is the optimization of linearity. While usual linearities are around 0.3%, values below 0.1% are only offered by a few manufacturers.
The LVDT digital controller from eddylab, to which either one or two sensors can be connected, now significantly improves the linearity of inductive displacement transducers. The digital controller conditions, digitizes and linearizes the sensor signal and outputs it as a voltage or current signal as well as via CAN bus or USB interface. Thanks to the integrated teach function, the measuring range of the sensor can be individually adapted by the customer: Here it is possible to set the teach range to up to 20% of the total range.
The LVDT digital controller from eddylab is used, for example, for position monitoring in valves of power plants. Here, digital controllers ensure that several valves always have exactly the same opening width in synchronous operation. If this were not the case, it would lead to undesirable effects and load conditions in the plant's pipelines.
