Multi-channel eddy-current displacement sensor offers space-saving design

Paul Boughton

To support designers requiring multi-channel displacement sensing in a compact package, Lion Precision has released the ECL150 Eddy-Current Displacement Sensor.

The new sensor features up to eight channels of high-resolution, non-contact displacement sensing in a package measuring only 4.2 x 7.6 x 2.3 inches (108 x 193 x 57 mm).
The ECL150 is built on the company’s new CompactFLEX platform which allows for easy customization for OEM applications.
According to Don Martin, company president: “More and more applications are requiring multiple sensing channels and offering less space to put it in; we needed to provide a better solution to our customers. We’ve reduced the power, cost and space demands while eliminating the need for interconnecting cables between channels.”

The ECL150 is a high-performance non-contact sensing system offering resolutions as low as 2.6 nanometres at 15 kHz bandwidth, and offering measurement ranges from 0.5 to 15 mm.
