Inductive Technology for Precision Position/Displacement Sensing


Although inductive technology is well known for proximity sensing of electrically conductive 'targets', not so well know is inductive 'eddy current' technology for high precision, high resolution position/displacement sensing. Inductive 'eddy current' technology has a long history in automotive test, condition monitoring of rotating equipment and extreme environment test labs. Its application is only limited by the ingenuity of the design or test engineer, but success in applying inductive 'eddy current' technology, or any sensing technology, hinges on a thorough understanding of that technology's capabilities.

This Webinar will cover inductive 'eddy current' basic circuit design, principles of operation, performance capabilities, and error sources. Application concerns, and thumb rules are presented as well as the flexibility of the technology to adapt to specific application requirements.
