Solartron Metrology contact gauging probes, LVDT probes or displacement sensors provide the gauge builder with the most cost effective solution for a range of dimensional precision measurement and positioning applications. In a conventional LVDT sensor the displacement probe tip is pushed out using an internal spring. The precision bearings inside the linear displacement sensor ensure precise positioning of the gauge probe tip. Attention to detail in both design and manufacture of the displacement sensor ensures precision measurement throughout the linear displacement transducer's life.

    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 Vacuum retract displacement probes (gauge probes) offer an alternative means of controlling the contact sensor tip using a vacuum rather than a positive pneumatic pressure.
