LVDT & RVDT Applications In Commercial Aircrafts: Planes

Sentech’s Aerospace LVDT, Linear Variable Differential Transformer, and RVDT, Rotary Variable Differential Transformer, are designed to be robust and function in harsh environments. Contactless RVDT & LVDT applications in aircrafts are chosen due to their long operational life and high reliability in extreme operating conditions. Virtually all fly-by-wire systems have built in redundancy, single or multi-channel aerospace position sensors.

Our custom designed yet cost-effective LVDT, Linear Variable Differential Transformer, and RVDT, Rotary Variable Differential Transformer, is unparalleled in the industry.  Our engineers consider the demanding applications of our customers’ needs.  Working in close collaboration with our customers to provide aerospace sensors that meet their requirements is paramount. Sentech offers superior repeatability of its LVDT’s and RVDT’s which ensures the consistent and accurate measurements over a long period of its operational life. Sentech also offers a high temperature and pressurized units to fit in many demanding applications.
