Customised transducers from RDP Electronics

Customised transducers from RDP Electronics

Design, development and manufacture of transducers and instrumentation to measure linear and rotary displacement, force, pressure and torque, will be showcased by RDP Electronics.

The company produces general industrial designs as well as applications involving high temperature, radiation, high pressure and long-term sub-sea installation. It can also produce custom transducers to suit specific environments and applications, such as this specially designed, compact LVDT for use in a hostile environment.

There will be two new products highlighted at this year’s show. The CANbus LVDT combines the benefits of absolute, high-repeatability, robust LVDT technology with efficient modern CAN interface protocols and the R360D rotary position sensor uses contactless magneto-resistive sensing to provide a conditioned 4.0 to 20mA output over a full 360° shaft rotation.

The company says it is a world leader in LVDT transducers for linear displacement measurement. It also supplies Micropulse magnetostrictive sensors. Full scale ranges run from 1.0mm to 7.6m.

For load cells (force), fluid pressure and torque (reaction or rotating) the company offers strain-gauge technology from Honeywell’s Sensotec and Lebow ranges.

Load cell ranges run from 250g to over 1000 tonnes. Pressure transducers (gauge, absolute or differential) are available from 35mbar to over 10,000bar. Torque transducers and systems capacities from 70mNm to 2,500Nm.

Associated instrumentation, separate or integral to the transducer, offers analogue voltage, 4,0 to 20mA, RS232, RS485, SSI and fieldbus. Additional features such as scalable displays, trips and data logging are available.
