Magnetostrictive Sensors

Several of my topics in the past have dealt with gauging and measurement. Most of the systems I have worked on in the past used LVDTs, encoders, optical sensors or machine vision when it came to accurately measuring the physical

LVDTs

One of the first applications I wrote about on this blog back in January 2011 was a Rocker Arm Cover gauge that used a number of LVDTs to calculate a plane and its intercept points. In that blog I concentrated

Rocker Cover Gauging

This is an application to determine whether a gasket is located properly in a rocker arm cover. 3 LVDTs were used to measure the outside edges of a plastic rocker arm cover establishing a plane. 4 additional LVDTs were then
