The design and adaptability of Cleveland Electric Labs linear and rotary displacement sensors provide optimum measurement possibilities for a wide variety of applications. CEL’s linear sensor has a travel range from less than 1 inch up to 18 inches with an accuracy of 0.005. These sensors are able to cover a wide range of measurements from large civil structures to the smallest test applications. There are several advantages of fiber optic displacement sensing. First, several sensors can be multiplexed on the same fiber. The fiber can also be thousands of feet in length with no decrease in the performance of the sensor. Additionally, no external EMI/RF interference will affect the performance of the sensor, including lightning strikes. The body is available in both aluminum and stainless steel, for extreme environmental conditions. Both ends have configurable mounting options; including spherical bearings, trunnion mounting and a four bolt pattern to secure the sensor. Other options include a spring loaded displacement rod, rubber bellows for protection in dusty environments and a fully sealed version for submersible applications.
