Position Transducer - Case studies


Linear Position Transducer - Bridge Movement

Our linear position transducers have been used in the civil engineering profession for measuring the movement of structures.  They have been used on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link construction project.  Here 31 linear position transducers have been used to measure the relative positions of a bridge and its piles as the bridge has been jacked up to realign its height.

Boiler Movement Monitoring 

Linear position transducer.A power station experienced rogue disturbance to boiler pipes and pipe hangers.  Our linear displacement transducers were fitted at several points around the boiler to determine the directions of expansion where the boiler changed temperature.  Triangulation of the differences between the theoretical expansion and the actual movement identified a point where the natural boiler movement was constrained.

Our position transducers have been used in many places where linear displacement is difficult to measure. E.g. valve positions where high vibration or misalignment is a problem, also long stroke actuators where low cost is required.
