New Technologies in Inductive Displacement Measurements
Posted:
In contrast to conventional inductive sensors, displacement sensors based on eddy currents stand out due to their high accuracy, bandwidth and temperature stability. Furthermore, this measuring principle enables measurements on ferro- or non-ferromagnetic objects. The sensors are also resistant to harsh industrial environments including dirt, oil, pressure and fluctuating temperatures.

The eddyNCDT 3060 is a new, powerful eddy current measurement system for fast, high precision displacement measurements. With more than 400 compatible sensor models, ease of use and smart signal processing, the eddyNCDT 3060 defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement. The industrial-grade M12 Ethernet interface enables a modern fieldbus connection. The compact controller design as well as the fieldbus connection make the measuring system suitable for integration into machines and systems.

The DT3061 controller provides enhanced features such as 5-point calibration, setting of switching and temperature outputs, as well as storage of multiple characteristic curves.

Non-contact, inductive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon operate according to the eddy current measuring principle. Unlike conventional, inductive displacement sensors, they measure on ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials providing high accuracy, frequency response and temperature stability. Due to their immunity to oil, dirt, pressure and temperature, these inductive eddy current sensors are primarily used for integration in machines and facilities.

Performance and universality for industrial use

The eddyNCDT 3060 is a new and powerful inductive measuring system for fast, high precision displacement measurements. The system comprises a compact controller, a sensor and an integrated cable and is factory-calibrated either for ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic materials. With more than 400 compatible sensor models, high speed and smart signal processing, the eddyNCDT 3060 defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement.

Ideal for integration into plant and machinery

As sensor and controller are temperature-compensated, very high measurement accuracies can be achieved even in fluctuating temperatures. The sensors are designed for ambient temperatures up to a maximum of +200C and an ambient pressure up to 20 bar.


New benchmark in controller technology

The industrial-grade M12 Ethernet interface enables a modern fieldbus connection. Configurable analog outputs enable to output the measured values as voltage or current. When connecting a PC via the Ethernet interface, a modern web interface can be accessed without any further installation and enables the software setting of sensor and controller.

Maximum performance with eddyNCDT 3061

The DT3061 controller provides enhanced features such as 5-point calibration, switching and temperature outputs, as well as storage of multiple characteristic curves. As eddyNCDT 3060 systems are equipped with an innovative frequency separation feature, no synchronization is necessary with multi-channel measurements.
