Transducer applications are wide ranging. Our LVDTs, ADTs (angular) and LVTs (velocity) are seemingly everywhere... from unique projects such as monitoring the structural stability of Mt. Rushmore to the levelness of the Space Shuttle Crawler... to more general areas such as hydraulic cylinder feedback, actuator control or structural testing. We've helped countless companies get the job done!

Over the years, our customers have raised many interesting questions regarding the operation of our transducers. Examples include: How is an LVDT's non-linearity calculated? Can you use an LVDT in a vacuum environment? How do I scale the output of a DC LVDT for all-positive readings? We've turned the more commonly asked questions into our famous Trans-TekNotes. Links to all published TekNotes are given below.
