New High Speed Eddy Current Displacement Sensors

By Bestech Australia

Bestech Australia introduces the new eddyNCDT 3001 and 3005 eddy current sensors that measure displacement, distance, position, oscillations and vibrations at high speeds of up to 100kHz. They provide high precision non-contact measurements while staying wear-free in harsh environments.

eddyNCDT 3001 eddy current displacement sensors are specially designed for applications where conventional, inductive displacement sensors often perform at their limits. Due to their extremely compact design, these sensors are increasingly used in applications that have to date only been reserved for inductive proximity sensors. They are particularly well suited to the detection of high speed processes, operating with a frequency response up to five times higher than inductive sensors and are therefore able to reliably detect fast movements at up to 5kHz. Elaborate linearization procedures during production enable an excellent linearity of 28µm.

The eddyNCDT 3005 consists of sensor, cable and external miniature controller. These new eddy current sensors can optionally be custom engineered for high temperature applications up to 180°C. Due to its pressure-resistant, thermally stable and compact design, the eddyNCDT 3005 is ideal for machine integration. Controller, cable and sensor are pressure-resistant up to 10 bar. Compact, robust sensor designs and high measurement accuracy, combined with a particularly favourable price / performance ratio, make these sensors suitable for high volume applications and for integration into plant, equipment and machinery.
