Macro Sensors Hits Milestone With 1,000th Custom LVDT Linear Position Sensor Design

4 November 2014

Macro Sensors has reached a personal milestone in engineering its 1000th custom Linear Position Sensor design in addressing a unique operating requirement to provide reliable and long-term incremental position feedback underwater as part of a sub-sea measurement system. 

Subsea environments are some of the most difficult areas for any sensor to perform, especially when performance life of as much as 20 years is expected in an underwater application. Macro Sensors engineered a custom linear position sensor that was hermetically sealed and constructed of special alloys to withstand the temperature, salinity, oxygen levels and seawater depths.

From mechanical changes to complete new designs, Macro Sensors offers the engineering and manufacturing capabilities to customize linear position sensors or linear variable differential transformers for challenging applications in a variety of industries including oil & gas, subsea, medical, aerospace, military and factory automation. The company addresses requirements for LVDT sensor operation in high pressures to 35k psi; extreme temperatures to 800°F; vacuum conditions; mild radiation, nuclear, chemical and water environments; as well as special configurations for remote locations and tight spaces.

Macro Sensors custom designed LVDTs have been used in a wide range of applications:

- Monitoring the integrity of internal water tight hatches of submarines
- Fuel rod position measurement for nuclear power generation
- Down hole drilling tool for cutter position feedback
- Bellows position indicator for oil temperature compensation in compressors
- Furnace gate opening indication
- Steam valve proportional position control for turbines
