Ultra-Compact Built-in Transducer

IET-inductive built-in transducers

Measuring mandrels equipped with IET built-in transducers

In the past, indirect methods were often used when checking bores, grooves and the distances between very narrow surfaces and their reference planes. These methods necessitated complicated lever systems or pneumatic procedures, since all known electronic length transducers could not be positioned directly at the measuring point. Today the IET transducer, an inductive built-in transducer of ultra-compact size, can be directly positioned in the measuring plane.

The IET built-in transducer has a size of only 5 x 5 x 15 mm with measuring ranges of +/- 0.2 and +/- 0.4 mm. Direct measurement of both deep and shallow bores, grooves and a host of other difficult gaging applications are now possible because of its ultra-compact size. It is composed of a basic body equipped with a coil system and spring-loaded rocker carrying the sensing element. The design of the rocker offers a variety of measuring capabilities including medical device OEMs. The sensing elements range from hard metal over ruby and silicium nitride to silicium carbide. It is free from mechanical friction and hysteresis making it suitable for highly dynamic measuring tasks.

The IET is designed to solve tough gauging problems and to simplify complicated situations. The IET is available as a stand-alone element or complete design and build service.
