The linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) is a type of electrical transformer used for measuring linear displacement (position). A counterpart to this device. LVDT Trainer ST is designed to learn basics of LVDT transducer. The main LVDT is the acronym for Linear Variable Differential Transformer. The LVDT is . offers 4 lvdt trainer kit products. About 25% of these are educational equipment. A wide variety of lvdt trainer kit options are available to you.

Where digital processing in the form of a microprocessor or FPGA is available in the system, lvdf is customary for the processing device to carry out the fault detection, and possibly ratiometric [4] processing to improve accuracy, by dividing the difference in secondary voltages by the sum of the secondary voltages, to make the measurement independent of the exact amplitude of the excitation signal.

High repeatability and reliability.

Linear Variable Differential Transducer (L.V.D.T) Trainer

The linear variable differential transformer has three solenoidal coils placed end-to-end around a tube. I agree to the terms and privacy policy. These transducers have low hysteresis and excellent repeatability. Because the sliding tdainer does not touch the inside of the tube, it can move without friction, making the LVDT a highly reliable device. This small residual voltage is due to phase shift and is often called quadrature error.

Even if the power is switched off, on restarting it, the LVDT shows the same measurement, and no positional information is lost. The LVDT is designed with long slender coils to make the output voltage essentially linear over displacement up to several inches several hundred millimetres long. Our offered range is available in various educational and physical specifications in order to meet the wide needs of clients.


Number of Employees Upto 10 People. The absence of any sliding or rotating contacts allows the LVDT to be completely sealed against the environment. The LVDT converts a position or linear displacement from a mechanical reference zero, or null position into a proportional electrical signal containing phase for direction and amplitude for distance information.

As the core moves, the primary’s linkage to the two secondary coils changes and causes the induced voltages to change.

There is no quadrature error with this scheme, and the position-dependent difference voltage passes smoothly through zero at the null point.

Product Features Self contained and easy to operate. Further, the factor inputs we utilize to design these kits are sourced from reliable vendors of the market.

Water Level Measurement Trainer Scientech The coils are connected so that the output voltage is the difference hence “differential” between the top secondary voltage and the bottom secondary voltage.

When the core is in its central position, equidistant between the two secondaries, equal voltages are induced in the two secondary coils, but the two signals cancel, so the output tariner is theoretically zero. Study of Temperature Transducers Scientech The kit has all the necessary sections like oscillator, amplifier, rectifierdigital meteretc required by the user.

A counterpart to this device that traiiner used for measuring rotary displacement is called a rotary variable differential transformer RVDT. Modern systems, particularly those involving safety, require fault detection of the LVDT, and the normal method is to demodulate each secondary separately, using precision half wave or full wave rectifiers, based on op-amps, and compute the difference by subtracting the DC signals.


The phase of the output voltage determines the direction of the displacement up or down and amplitude indicates the amount of displacement.

Because, for constant excitation voltage, the sum of the two secondary voltages is almost constant throughout the operating stroke of the LVDT, its value remains within a small window and can be monitored such that any internal failures of the LVDT will cause the sum voltage to deviate from its limits and traienr rapidly detected, causing a fault to be indicated.

Sensitive, Linear Stable and Accurate. LVDTs are commonly used for position feedback in servomechanismsand for automated measurement in machine tools and many other industrial and scientific applications.

Also, apart from the uni-axial linear motion of the core, any other movements such as the rotation of the core around the axis will not affect its measurements.
