LVIT Position Sensor Technology
What’s it all about?
Alliance Sensors Group, a division of H.G. Schaevitz, LLC, has developed a linear position sensing technology called LVIT that offers an excellent price-to-performance ratio compared to other linear position sensing technologies such as LVDTs, linear potentiometers, and magnetostrictive devices. Furthermore, LVITs can offer the best stroke-to-length ratio of any contactless linear position sensor, because their overall length only increases by a relatively small size.
Alliance Sensors Group
  • Excellent price-performance ratio compared to other common linear position sensors
  • Superior stroke-to-length ratio compared to other contactless linear position sensors
  • Contactless, frictionless operation with no components to wear out and no ring magnet
  • Extremely robust to environments as a result of ruggedized construction and materials
  • Many sensor sizes and configurations for different position sensing applications
  • Pressure sealed sensors for fluid power applications, including in-cylinder position
  • Less expensive than LDTs and more reliable than in-cylinder potentiometers
LR-19 Series
LVIT Linear Position Sensor
Long Lasting, Contactless, Inductive Sensors
The LR-19 series LVIT (Linear Variable Inductance Transducer) position sensors by Alliance Sensors Group are contactless devices designed for factory automation and a variety of industrial and commercial applications such as motor sport vehicles, automotive testing, solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brake position, and packing equipment. With their compact device, superior performance, and excellent stroke-to-length ratio, the LR-19 sensors are ideal for both industrial testing, laboratories, and OEM applications.
