Rotary Displacement Sensor uses capacitive technique.
Patented capacitive technique provides a high accuracy,
no friction solution to rotary displacement measurements
The RCDT rotary displacement sensor from RDP Electronics Ltd
addresses the problems of accurate rotational measurement of a
shaft through the application of a capacitive, no-contact technique.
Designed primarily for industrial process applications, the RCDT
has a measurement range spanning 300° of arc with a full-scale
resolution of 0.01% and linearity of± 1%.
The compact housing of the RCDT incorporates hybrid electronic
circuitry, operating from 13-18Vdc, to provide a 3Vdc full-scale
output. A major advantage of the capacitive measurement technique
is a long lifespan due to the absence of contact wear, and the
sensors immunity to off-axis forces.
Measurements can be taken from limited-range shafts or continuously
rotating shafts, and a double-gang version is available to provide
dual outputs or single redundancy for critical measurement situations.
