The mechanical detection of linear movement is done by a front guided or loose push rod.
The LVDT linear sensors are available as spring-suspended probe tip (MACT) with inside spring return device, with ball joints (MACG) to compensate vertical or horizontal offset or with a loose push rod (MACL) versions.
The inductive measurement principle of the MAC is configured with a cast spool in LVDT winding. Due to the contactless measurement principle long lifespan can be reached and permits high dynamic application, especially if small oscillating movement has to be detected and has high resolution also for movement in micro step. The robust construction of the inductive MAC with IP65 (optional IP67/68) sealing permits the use also in heavy-duty applications.
