RDP Electronics Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS

Specially produced LVDTs for high vacuum ultra clean applications.

RDP Electronics Ltd has developed special expertise when designing transducers for applications in vacuum to ensure both survival of the device and the avoidance of contamination of the vacuum.

RDP?s manufacturing process mimimises the risk of damage to the transducer by means of slow pressure changes and also by modifying the transducer to ensure that there are no sealed cavities in which a pressure differential could cause damage. Out-gassing into the vacuum - that is to say?vapour?escape from adhesives and varnishes etc inside the transducer - is reduced by controlled ?baking? of the transducer to thoroughly dry out such materials.

For extreme applications the transducer can be fully welded. For example the transducer may be used to measure the position of a mirror in a space telescope where any particles coating the mirror could be catastrophic. Fully welding the transducer ensures that the vapours are sealed inside the unit.

The RDP Electronics engineering support team can be contacted on 01902 457512 and will be happy to discuss and advise on requirements for these and other applications where standard products will not suit.
