Solartron Metrology contact digital gauging probes or displacement sensors provide the gauge builder with the most cost-effective solution for a range of dimensional precision measurement and positioning applications.

The digital gauge probe combines the strong features of a conventional linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) with enhanced accuracy. The accuracy specified for the digital sensor is total accuracy unlike conventional LVDTs which specify linearity. Another benefit of the digital displacement sensor (Gauge probe) is the probe requires no set up or adjustment with conditioning electronics like a traditional LVDT because the digital displacement sensor provides a precision measurement straight out of the box. Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.
