Macro Sensors Information
Macro Sensors’ extensive line of LVDT-based linear and rotary sensors are used for linear position measurement and feedback in a variety of industrial applications including factory automation, motion control systems, metal fabricating, automotive assembly as well as power plants, gas/steam turbines. Incorporated in 1994, the Company offers more than 200 years of cumulative design and manufacturing experience by its key staff in serving its OEM and end-user international customer base. On June 1, 2005, Macro Sensors was acquired by AST, manufacturer of state-of-the-art Micro-Electro- Mechanical- Structures (MEMS) based pressure sensors, transducers, and transmitters. Common applications of AST sensor products are in industrial OEM, hydraulic systems, fuel cells, medical gases, HVAC/R, refrigeration, oil & gas exploration/production, and off-road vehicles. For more information on AST products and technology, visit the AST website at www.astsensors.com.
Macro Sensors (www.macrosensors.com) offers its AC-operated LVDTs in different material housings to perform in varying operating environments including those with high and low temperature extremes, radiation exposure, seawater and vacuum pressure conditions.
Macro Sensors' (www.macrosensors.com ) MD 188 Series
Sub-miniature LVDT Position Sensor serves as a critical component of a probe within an ophthalmic ultrasound system used to image the eye and tissues around and behind the eye to determine the presence of pathology.
The compact size and highly accurate output of Macro Sensors (www.macrosensors.com) CD 375 Series of miniature LVDTs make the linear position sensors ideal for providing displacement feedback in different robotic applications.
Macro Sensors (www.macrosensors.com) Spring Loaded LVDT position sensors (also known as gaging probes) are serving as integral components in control systems that ensure the accurate landing of elevator cars at building floors.
