Our angular position sensors are either designed as line replaceable units (LRUs) or may be fitted inside servo-control actuators. They provide differential electrical outputs giving an image of the sensed angle.
We can also design the electrical modules for powering the sensor and processing the signal to a DC output.
*RVDT = Rotary Variable Differential Transformer
The sensor’s signal integrity, including its connection wiring, is easily detected by checking the sum of output voltages
Accuracy from ±1% Full Scale for a standard RVDT sensor
Sensors can be provided with manual/automatic locking and unlocking features
Electrical and also mechanical redundancy (up to 4 channels). Gearheads for multi-turn movements (e.g. cowl or flaps/slats actuation shafts)
Our engineers design each unit to be perfectly tuned for each application
Here are the different mechanisms that we can use to sense the angular position:
Our inductive position sensors are mainly used for aerospace and defence applications:
At Meggitt, we can provide you with RVDT inductive angular position sensors that are specifically designed for your application. To discuss what you need in more detail, please contact us.
