Linear Transducers

Linear transducers are used to measure movement in a straight line. Unlike current transducers, which convert current into another type of electrical signal, linear transducers convert displacement into an electrical signal that's proportional to the amount of displacement. 


How do linear transducers work?

Linear transducers are made up of a circular cluster of primary and secondary windings with a separate circular core that passes through the middle. The primary windings are triggered with an AC supply to produce a magnetic field. This then creates a signal in the secondary windings.


Uses for linear transducers

Linear transducers are designed to perform in very cold temperatures, harsh environments, and under high vibration and shock levels. Their robustness means that they are suitable for use in power turbines, hydraulics, automation, satellites and many other applications. 


A major advantage to using a linear transducer is that you can achieve high precision in dimensional measurements, meaning that they're also suitable for applications where accuracy is key, like construction and electronic circuitry.
