1 Cable Extension Transducers Cale Ash CEE 398KUC

2 Measurement Problem Need to measure linear distances/displacements: LVDTCET Linear Variable Differential TransformersCable Extension Transducers Two Options: RangeUp To 12 in. ~$600 (12in.) Flexible cable, but has more moving parts Rod can bend, but fewer moving parts ~$400 (60in.) Up To 1700 in. Cost Durability

3 Types Cable Extension Transducers (CETs) Come In: Industrial Grade Laboratory Grade (Discussed here) As well as in various sizes:

4 Applications Cable Extension Transducers (CET): Measure Linear Position Indicate Velocity and Acceleration Provide Reliability and Serviceability >10 5 cycle life Cable user-serviceable

5 Superior Performance CETs are ideal in many instances: Where Perfect Alignment is Not Possible Cannot use LVDT Here! Where Large Displacements are Expected Up to 100 for Laboratory Models Up to 1750 (145ft.!) for Industrial Models

6 Superior Performance CETs are ideal in many instances (cont.): If Difficult Mounting Conditions are Encountered Pulleys Enable Additional Flexibility Rigid Support Far From Measuring Point

7 Technology Cable is wound around a precision machined spool attached to either a: Potentiometer (variable resistor, analog) Incremental Encoder (optical, digital) A spring provides controlled recoil of the cable. X-Ray Vision!

8 Instrumentation Measurement Options Include: Voltage Divider Unregulated Input Incremental Encoder Current Output NSEL Models

9 Models Used In NSEL Both models feature: Adjustable Zero & Voltage Output High Accuracy (+/- 0.25%) Multiple Extension Ranges: PT1DC 0-2in. to 0-50in. PT in. to 0-100in. PT510 PT1DC

10 Availability LVDT CET

11 Summary CETs provide a useful, sometimes superior, alternative to LVDTs. Rotary potentiometer provides long life and simple output CETs are also cost effective and easy to install
