Alliance Sensors has introduced its first spring loaded LVIT (Linear Variable Inductive Transducer) series, the LRS-18. The new series consist of spring-loaded, contactless devices designed for dimension or position measuring in factory automation and industrial and commercial applications, including automotive testing, mil/aero test stands, robotic arms and packaging equipment, where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured.

At only 4” long, the LRS-18 stroke to length ratio is excellent; existing technologies with similar electrical specifications are 9” long to measure 1”.

LRS-18 sensors have a 19mm (0.75 inch) diameter aluminium or stainless-steel body with an M18 x 1 thread, and come with two hex jam nuts for easy installation in place of an 18mm analogue proximity sensor.

These sensors use a 0.25-inch diameter probe equipped with an AGD No. 9 contact tip.
