The tip is either mounted on a threaded stainless steel rod allowing easy gap adjustment on a bracket via two locking nuts or a flat, low profile mount. The driver demodulates the signal, amplifies and linearises it to provide an output proportional to the probe to target gap and/or vibration of the target.
The Eddy Current Probe consists of a precision-wound copper coil inside a chemical- and temperature-resistant PEEK tip. This is mounted on a threaded stainless steel rod for easy gap adjustment or a flat, low-profile mount. It is supplied with 1m of integral overbraided coaxial cable. Operates up to 180˚C. Operating gap depends on the tip diameter. Can be used with any driver.
Current output drivers give a 4-20mA output directly proportional to the measured component and allow direct connection to PLCs and other industrial controllers. Can be used with any probe type.
