SECTION 2 - UNPACKING
Remove the Packing list and verify that all equipment has been received. If
there are any questions about the shipment, please call OMEGA Customer
Service Department at 1-800-622-2378.
Upon receipt of shipment, inspect the container and equipment for any
signs of damage. Take particular note of any evidence of rough handing in
transit. Immediately report any damage to the shipping agent.
NOTE
The carrier will not honor any claims unless all shipping material is saved
for their examination. After examining and removing contents, save packing material and carton in the event reshipping is necessary.
SECTION 3 - OPERATION
OMEGA's LD200/300/400/500 displacement transducers are essentially
miniature transformers, have one primary winding, two symmetrically
wound secondary coils, and an armature core that is free to move along
the linear axis in precision bearing guides. A push rod connects the
monitored component to the armature core, such that the displacement of
that component moves the core off- center.
A voltage is applied across the primary winding and the EMF induced
in the magnetic circuit produces corresponding voltages in the secondary windings, which are connected differentially to produce a zero output
signal when the armature core is in its central position. When the core is
displaced off center in either direction, the efficiency of transformation
in the secondary winding on that side is increased and decreases in the
other secondary coil. This results in a positive (+ve) voltage output signal
when the core moves off center in one direction and a negative (-ve)
voltage output in the other direction. The intensity of the output signal is
directly proportional to the linear displacement of the core and, hence, of
the monitored component.
SECTION 4 TRANSDUCER MOUNTING INFORMATION
CLAMPING (DISPLACEMENT TRANSDUCERS)
The clamp should be non-metallic whenever possible. If a metal clamp is
used, care should be taken to ensure that it is linear over the entire body
of the transducer.
Mounting at one end of the transducer can give rise to non-linearity of five
per cent (5%) or worse.
Where possible, all large metal parts should be at least six inches (6") from
the transducers at all times to reduce their effect on the transducer.
PROBE TIPS (GAGING TRANSDUCERS)
Care should be taken not to overtighten the probe tip of the transducer.
The tip should be finger tight only and a thread locking compound used on
tip to prevent movement. Any overtightening is likely to damage the internal mechanism of the transducer and cause poor repeatability. The tip
used should be carefully selected to prevent excessive side pressure.
The maximum step height that the tip is to climb should not exceed 0.3R
of the tip.
PROBE CLAMPING (GAGING TRANSDUCERS)
When clamping the probe, care should be taken not to exceed 50 Kg point
load at any point on the body of the transducer. Exceeding this may cause
distortion of the case and result in damage to the internal components
The most common method of clamping the transducer is to use a split
collar or sleeve arrangement to spread the load over as large an area
as possible.
CABLE OUTLET (ALL TRANSDUCERS)
Maximum Bend Radius for the cable should not be less than six inches
(6”) for long life. The cable should be reinforced with Spiroband or a protective sleeve where it is likely to sustain damage.
Support for the cable should be provided at the point where it exists for the
transducer body whenever possible.
Continuous flexing of any part of the cable should be avoided.
SECTION 5 - LVDT SELECTION FACTORS
Particular attention should be made to the following factors when selecting
an LVDT for a specific application:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Nominal transducer linear stroke (core displacement)
Non-linearity
Typical sensitivity
Primary excitation requirements (voltage and frequency)
Residual voltage at null core position
Electrical terminations (wire leads, connector, cable length)
Environment (temperature, humidity, vibration, etc.)
Core dimensions and weight
SECTION 6 - WIRING
The transducer cables are color coded. Connections should be made as
indicated. Refer to Figure 1.
