Position transducers and LVDT gaging sensors are suitable for the application under keen industrial ambient conditions such as high temperature or pressure as well as acceleration and high measuring cycles. Gaging sensors are equipped with a plunger guided in plain bearings and fitted with a return spring. Gaging sensors are often used to measure e.g. length, width, diameter and thickness. On applying inductive sensors process times are reduced, operational readiness is extended, operational safety is increased, production yield is improved and therefore a gain in convenience is achieved.
