Mechanical sensors - Analog

These mechanical position sensors are measuring systems that operate on the principle of the differential transformer, a special form of transformer. It consists of a primary coil and two secondary coils. The primary coil is symmetrically arranged between the secondary coils. A movable soft iron core changes the coupling factors between the coils. When it is in the center position, the arrangement is symmetrical and the resulting voltage of the secondary coils is 0. When the core is displaced, there is unequal magnetic coupling and an output voltage on the secondary coils.

With the aid of an electronic evaluation circuit, a length-proportional analog voltage signal (0 ... 10V) is generated from this; in the center position, the measurable output voltage is 5V.

The life of such a sensor is almost unlimited due to the non-contacting measuring method. In addition, the measured value is retained even in the event of interruption of the supply voltage.
