PNEUMATIC

A pneumatic displacement sensor (gauge probe) allows the number of parts in the fixture to be reduced resulting in improved reliability and reduced fixture cost. It also allows for fast automatic loading of the part into the gauge as the displacement probe tip can be in the fully ‘retract position’ when this is occurring.

 

The benefit of using a pneumatic push displacement sensor (gauge probe) compared to a spring push probe is that there is less need to design mechanisms to bring the contact senor tip onto the part being measured thus simplifying the overall gauge design. A pneumatic displacement sensor (gauge probe) allows the number of parts in the fixture to be reduced resulting in improved reliability and reduced fixture cost. It also allows for fast automatic loading of the part into the gauge as the displacement probe tip can be in the fully ‘retract position’ when this is occurring.

 

The pneumatic digital gauge probe combines the strong features of a conventional linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) with enhanced accuracy. The accuracy specified for the digital senor is total accuracy unlike conventional LVDT’s 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 senor 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.

    AJP PNEUMATIC JET

    Jet ‘J Type’ probes are similar to pneumatic, except that actuation is by an inbuilt piston. High tip forces are available but as air is vented through a port close to the front of the LVDT displacement sensor, they have a lower IP rating. These pneumatic displacement probes will continue to operate even if the gaiter becomes punctured.

    AWP PNEUMATIC ULTRA FEATHER TOUCH

    The Ultra Feather Touch displacement probe has so light a tip force, it is a viable alternative to a non-contact sensor in many applications. With various tips available in ruby and nylon, the UFT displacement sensor is already being used to check glass, rubber, semi-conductor wafers and other delicate materials.
