Formula One technology for new RVDT Sensors.
A new RVDT displacement transducer launched
by Penny & Giles Controls uses technology developed
for a number of leading Formula One engine suppliers.
The rugged, high integrity transducer is specially designed for
harsh automotive and motorsport environments where performance
and reliability under extremes of temperature, shock and vibration
The RVDTs low mass/high strength titanium body houses a high
integrity ratiometric coil and rotor, and it can be supplied with a
choice of stainless steel shafts and mounting flanges to suit high
performance, high temperature engine control applications.
Penny & Giles can also supply its SCM100 signal-conditioning
module for use with the RVDT.
As its performance and output are virtually unaffected by temperature
and supply changes, the AC operated unit is ideal for use in the
difference over sum (ratiometric) configuration to provide high
system accuracy. It also offers a ±60º electrical angle (120º total).
Other features of the new RVDT include contactless sensing
elements, fast dynamic response, infinite resolution and virtually
infinite service life, precision low torque bearings and an operating
temperature range from -40° to +180°C.
