COMPACTRIO EDDY-CURRENT DISPLACEMENT MEASURING SYSTEM NOW AVAILABLE WITH INCREASED MEASUREMENT RANGE

ECD140 eddy-current displacement measuring systems from Lion Precision now offer measurement ranges up to 15 mm. Previously, 3,5 mm was the largest measurement range. “We’ve added several new probe sizes with larger ranges for the ECD140,” according to Don Martin, company president. He adds, “Users of the National Instruments CompactRIO system have enjoyed plug-and-play displacment sensing for their systems, but many need a larger measurement range – now they have it.

Before the ECD140, system integrators, developers and machine designers using National Instruments CompactRIO platform were forced to use external displacement sensing systems plus a data acquistion module to capture the sensor’s signal. Martin explains, “That scenario means a lot extra cabling and connections adding to setup headaches and increased potential for failure.” The ECD140 is a fully compliant CompactRIO module and provides direct access to measurement data with no intervening hardware or modules. Those familiar with CompactRIO FPGA programming use downloadable drivers to quickly connect to the ECD140 and start making measurements.

The CompactRIO system from National Instruments is an open, expandable system powered by LabVIEW. The system allows hot swapping of a multitude of modules to quickly configure a data acquisition and control system. No other noncontact displacement sensor module is available for the CompactRIO system.
