Pennsauken, NJ, May 5, 2005. Macro Sensors, a manufacturer of LVDT-based linear and rotary sensors, gaging probes, support electronics and related instrumentation, is now a Siemens Westinghouse-approved vendor for LVDT position sensors used on Westinghouse steam turbines. The LVDTs are implemented for position measurement on governor valves, throttle valves, reheat/stop valves, interceptor valves, and many other control valves.
Macro Sensors offers a variety of its Linear Variable Differential Transducers (LVDTs) linear position sensors in configurations from 2 to 20 inches long and with different outputs to satisfy the requirements of both current and legacy turbine installations.
Macro Sensors manufactures exact replacement LVDTs that are form, fit, function equivalents with the same electrical and mechanical specifications as Westinghouse stock units.
