Kavlico LVDTs operate using a non-contacting transduction principle providing friction free motion and infinite resolution. This principle has been refined through manufacturing and test technology, to make our LVDTs the standard for flight and fuel control position measurements. Our success stems from our ability to manufacture matched multiple sensors (channels) for redundancy.
Multiple channels are provided in a variety of housing designs that may be mounted directly on airframe control and cockpit control surfaces or provided as an integral part of a servo valve or main ram actuator.
Typical LVDT applications include:
Position Feedback for numerous commercial and military aircraft systems including: flight control actuators, valves, nose wheel steering systems, cockpit controls, engine bleed air systems, fuel controls, fly-by-wire systems, brake-by-wire systems, environmental control systems, and more.
Single Channel LVDTs
Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) is a linear position sensor that produces an electrical signal proportional to the displacement of a moveable core (armature) within a hollow cylindrically wound coil assembly. The core is attached to the target via an armature extension.
