  • Customer-specific Inelta valve sensors in serial quantities

    Inelta Sensorsysteme, leading sensor manufacturer for measuring distances, movement and force, has developed valve sensors and position switches based on its LVDT technology and featuring high precision and a rugged design for hydraulic applications. Inelta LVDT-HY series sensors, for example, with a measuring range between ± 1.2 mm and ±10 mm, provide accuracies in the µm range in detecting valve positions. As a market innovation, Inelta has introduced LVDT-based valve sensors, designated IHDL-M16, where the sensor module can be exchanged without interrupting or opening the hydraulic circuit. Drawing on many years of know-how in research and development and high production capacities, the sensor specialist is capable of producing custom-designed valve sensors for demanding applications in high quantities. Like the standard product line, custom-designed valve sensors are supplied as incapsulated, turnkey systems, consisting of an LVDT sensor, a pressure tube and a connecting shaft. The systems are available for measuring ranges between 1.2 mm and 36 mm, as versions for installation as an add-on or as integrated sensors. All hydraulic components can withstand 400 bar pressure with max. pressure peaks up to 1,200 bar. Outputs are customer-specified, analog 4…20mA or 0…10V or with digital interfaces such as IO-Link. Upon request, Inelta will design sensors for other applications, such as pumps and dosage systems. For applications with high vibration and shock, Inelta has developed a sensor capable of handling 30g. The standard protection class for all units is IP65 (IP67 to IP69 optional), and they can be used in ambient temperatures from -25 °C to +100 °C. Higher protection classes and an extended temperature range of -45 °C to +125 °C are available on special request.

  • New ring force sensors

    Inelta is expanding its range of custom-made sensors to include ring force sensors for measuring the axial forces applied to screws, shafts, or axles. Typical applications for this type of sensor – which are also known as “load washers” because of how they are fitted – include determining or monitoring the pre-tensioning forces of screw connections. The compact models in the new series have an external diameter of up to 60 mm and can record compressive forces of up to 200 kN. Depending on the desired through-hole size, the installation height is just 8 to 11 mm. Another of the company’s innovations in this area are the versions with an integrated signal conditioner. Thanks to the full-bridge strain gauge configuration, the stainless steel deformation elements, and flat contact surface measuring just 0.05 mm, the new ring force sensors ensure a very high level of insensitivity to eccentric forces. Inelta supplies the standard models in an encapsulated design together with a matching signal conditioner – and can also be provided with an integrated newton indicator if required. Further versions of the ring force sensor are currently under development at Inelta. Application know-how is key The reliability of a measurement solution not only depends on the use of robust sensor technology, but also on specific design features of the selected sensor models, their application-specific configuration, and correct placement. That is why Inelta, as a specialist in industrial sensor technology, supports its customers with comprehensive application know-how, in-depth advice and, where required, also carries out custom-fit modifications to its products.

  • Standardized calibration service for force sensors

    Even when using high-quality force sensors, environmental and operating conditions can still result in aging of the sensors and cause the measurement values to drift. Therefore, force sensors used for applications that require a high level of measurement precision should be calibrated on an annual basis in accordance with EN ISO 376. The sensor manufacturer Inelta is now also offering this type of calibration service for users of products from other manufacturers. The Inelta Group has its own accredited testing laboratory certified in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017. The sensor specialist is thus able to provide its force sensors with all of the required factory calibration and other calibration certificates and can also carry out recalibrations at the company. On request, Inelta can now also calibrate and certify third party products with measurement ranges from 0.1 kN to 200 kN. Application know-how is key The reliability of a measurement solution not only depends on the use of robust sensor technology, but also on specific design features of the selected sensor models, their application-specific configuration, and correct placement. That is why Inelta, as a specialist in industrial sensor technology, supports its customers with comprehensive application know-how, in-depth advice and, where required, also carries out custom-fit modifications to its products. Company background Inelta Sensorsysteme GmbH & Co. KG, based in Taufkirchen near Munich, has been developing, producing, and selling standard and customized sensor solutions for industrial applications since 2000.

  • Inelta is expanding its range of bending beams

    Inelta is continuing to extend its range of bending beams with the FT21 series. The tension and compression force transducers with low space requirements and an integrated measuring amplifier combined with high linearity are used for measuring small and medium sized forces. Through-holes are used to make integration and fastening easy. The FT21 bending beams with the dimensions 68 mm x 28.5 mm x 26 mm are intended for the range 0.2 kN to 1 kN while the model dimensions for 2 kN to 10 kN are 78 mm x 31.5 mm x 33 mm. The type of output signals can be selected from various voltage or current outputs. The degree of protection on the double bending beam sensor is IP64. With a nominal temperature range of -20 °C to +60 °C, it is suitable for applications from stage technology, cranes, lifts and lifting technology, to production machines, material testing, presses, or welding systems. With its product portfolio, Inelta provides a comprehensive bending beam program from 100 N to 10 kN in different size categories.

  • Replaceable at full process pressure: New LVDT valve sensors with a modular design

    With their special modular construction, the LVDT-based valve sensors in the IHDL-M16 series from Inelta Sensorsysteme allow the sensor module to be replaced while the process is running. Whereas in conventional LVDTs used in hydraulic applications, the sensor technology with the coil windings and the pressure-encapsulated tube for the core or core extension form one unit, the IHDL-M16 series has the advantage that the pressure tube and sensor are mounted separately for linear displacement transducers. In addition to that, the core extension is connected to the valve first and then sealed by the pressure pipe with an M16x1.5 flange on the process side. The sensor can then be slid over the pressure pipe and removed at any time for servicing without interrupting the ongoing process. Pressure pipe and flange are designed for pressures up to 550 bar. The new valve sensors feature measurement ranges of up to 40 mm despite being particularly short. Thanks to the absolute measuring principle, the sensors always recognize the correct core position again after a service has been carried out or in the event of a power failure. There are two potentiometers protected by sealing screws on the back of the housing for setting the offset and gain. When requested to do so, Inelta is also glad to support its customers with the realization and implementation of special measurement solutions. Thanks to its engineers’ comprehensive application know-how combined with production in Germany, the manufacturer is able to create special solutions or modify series sensors for customer-specific requirements at short notice.
