Electronic gaging principles offer a variety of measurement solutions that benefit from a contact inspection approach. Common dimensional features include:
These Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) gage probes operate with two, small electrical transformers which share a single core. When the core is centrally located between the two coils, the output is balanced or zeroed. When the core is physically displaced, the output of the two coils becomes unequal, with one coil increasing in output and the other decreasing. The measure of the core's movement is then recorded by these unequal outputs to represent true linear displacement or changes in size. These units are designed for used with all Edmunds Amplifiers.
Amplifiers provide visual representation of the size being measured, permitting the user to take readings quickly and accurately. Multiple-measurement operations can be accomplished on one amplifier, with capability of measurement analysis. With every amplifier having different electronic and hardware capabilities, there is a system for every job. All Edmunds amplifiers are also air to electonic capable.
Edmunds Gages Reed Floats are frictionless, motion-transfer devices for use in our custom gages, ranging from manual fixture gages to fully automatic computerized systems. Several are designed for use with separate gage probes. Others have the gage probe built in. We offer a variety of sizes and styles to suit your applications.
For solving various measurement tasks, it is necessary to extend, bypass or deviate the range between the gage and the probe or indicator. Hafner angle heads and extensions maintain the correct indicating ratio while allowing a 4mm or 10mm extension or angular head.
