What does LVDT Stand For?

LVDTs are a sensor used to monitor linear displacement. They convert the linear motion of an object into an electrical signal. Working principle of an LVDT LVTDs are constructed of a primary coil, one or two secondary coils, a ferromagnetic core (or slug), a housing – usually stainless...

Pressure Transducer Definition

Pressure transducers can be defined as a type of sensor which converts physical pressure into an electrical signal. They can be used for measuring pressure in liquids and gases. Pressure transmitter is another term commonly used for a Pressure Transducer and are suitable for a range of applications...

What is a Temperature Sensor?

There are different types of temperature sensors available and they each use different technologies and principles to take the temperature measurement. Different Types of Temperature Sensor Thermistors can be very small in size. They consist of a sensing element which can be either glass or...

Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transducers

The certifications our intrinsically safe pressure transducers hold are ATEX/IECEx and UL/CSA approval.  What is an Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transducer? The term “Intrinsically-safe” refers to equipment and devices which, during use, will not release enough thermal or...

Types of Rotary Position Sensor

A rotary position sensor is used to measure displacement in a rotary fashion, in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. The different types of rotary position sensors include contacting or non-contacting technology. True non-contacting rotary position sensors contain no touching parts...

Temperature Sensor Comparison

There are many different temperature sensor types. They are all suited to different applications and industries and have different features and advantages. Types of Temperature Sensors At Variohm we have a wide range of temperature sensors available at Variohm, some of these...
