Solution

Developing the LVDT-ISDP with pneumatic sensor rod control and integrated signal conditioner has made it possible to pneumatically keep the sensor rod retracted until the glass surface reached the rear wall. This sensor solution from Inelta Sensorsysteme means precise measurement values free of hysteresis can be supplied while avoiding changes in work procedures.

Checking position of plate glass in production

Initial situation

Various measuring methods can be used to determine the position of plate glass, depending on the requirements. Ultrasonic or mechanical displacement measurement systems are usually used here. In order to record the distance between the back wall and the glass surface as well as the distance and position of the panels, the search was on for a suitable sensor solution. This one should avoid production errors and improve work safety.

Solution

The miniature LVDT-IKDT series made by Inelta Sensorsysteme is ideally suited for quality monitoring in manufacturing processes. Due to their small diameter of only 8mm, sensors of the LVDT-IKDT series are convenient for use in limited space and additionally provide precise measurement results.

Quality monitoring during the production process

Initial situation

During the manufacturing of thin rolled sheet such as nickel-iron alloys, the accuracy and quality of the strip output thickness are very important factors. Both equipment wear and fluctuations in material grade have a decisive influence on quality. High-resolution displacement sensors can be used to determine tendency deviations of the sheet thickness in relation to the roll width.

Solution

The robust LVDT displacement sensor from Inelta Sensorsysteme can detect changes in bridge statics at an early stage by reliably detecting smallest displacements at critical load points. Inelta‘s special LVDTs for static monitoring feature an unprecedented compact design with a length-to-touch ratio of 1:1.5.

Precise bridge monitoring with LVDT sensors

Initial situation

The number of bridges in need of rehabilitation has increased significantly in recent years. In addition to unexpected material fatigue or undercutting of foundations, the causes are often found in overloading due to increasing traffic and inadequate monitoring of structural statics. In order to detect damage and hazards to bridges at an early stage, reliable monitoring of bridge statics is needed under outdoor conditions.
