LVDT / RVDT Measurement (L/D) (R/D)

NAI's Intelligent Function Modules provide uniquely flexible, mix & match customization options for use with our COTS hardware. Learn More

Modules LD1, LD2, LD3, LD4, and LD5 are NAI’s latest generation LVDT/RVDT Measurement Modules. These multichannel programmable modules are used on our Multifunction Embedded I/O Boards, Rugged Systems, and Single Board Computers (SBCs) offered in OpenVPX, cPCI, VME, and PCI/PCIe configurations.

Modules LD1 - LD5

A linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) is a type of electrical transformer/transducer used for measuring linear displacement (position). A counterpart to this device used for measuring rotary displacement is called a rotary variable differential transformer (RVDT). Both types provide output signals (voltages) based upon an AC excitation source. This causes a magnetic flux to be generated on a transformer secondary(ies) by a moveable core proportional to the linear displacement position being gauged.

The modules cover a wide range of excitation voltages/frequency so they can interface to almost any transducer. With isolated excitation and signal input covering 2, 3, or 4-wire transducer interfaces and a normalized digital position word based on a percentage of full scale travel, these modules are able to interface to virtually any type LVDT or RVDT transformer.

All LVDT/RVDT modules feature a background self-test capability and most platforms support an optional, programmable AC excitation supply. In addition to state-of-the-art technologies and specialized design algorithms, the modules include many other useful application features such as excitation loss detection, and excitation voltage and frequency measurement. Full-scale operating signal and excitation voltages between 2-28 VRMS can be specified for LD1-4 or 28-90 VRMS for LD5. Individual excitation inputs are supplied for each channel.
