Measuring Displacement, Distance and Position Under Pressure

The eddyNCDT 3005 from Micro-Epsilon is a new, powerful eddy current measurement system that is used for quick, high precision displacement measurements. Due to its thermal stability, pressure-resistance and compact design, it is perfect for machine integration.

Micro-Epsilon’s non-contact eddy current sensors are engineered for very high precise measurement of distance, oscillation, displacement, position and vibration, etc. to micrometer accuracies. Pressure, oil, dirt, or high temperatures do not have much influence on measurement precision.

This eddy current measurement system is especially suitable for challenging industrial environments. As the compact controller and sensor of the eddyNCDT 3005 are temperature-compensated, it is possible to achieve exceptionally high measurement accuracies even in high or fluctuating temperatures, for instance in automotive production.

The sensors are engineered for ambient temperatures up to a maximum of +125 °C but can also be customized for temperatures from -30 °C to +180 °C. Cable, controller, and sensor are pressure-resistant up to 10 bar. Compact, robust sensor designs and high measurement accuracy, with a particularly appealing performance/price ratio, make these sensors ideal for high volume applications and for incorporation into equipment, plant and machinery.

The key features of the eddyNCDT 3005 sensor are as follows:

  • High precision measurement accuracy
  • Ideal for machine integration
  • Compact and robust design
  • High frequency response
  • Easy to use (plug and play)
  • Temperature compensation up to 180 °C
  • Sensor for ferro- and non-ferromagnetic targets

Eddy Current Displacement Measurement

Eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are engineered for distance, position, displacement, and movement measurements, as well as for detecting vibrations and oscillations. Micro-Epsilon’s non-contact operating eddy current sensors are well-known for their high precision, and are even used for micrometer-accuracy measurements.

Robust Eddy Current Measurement System

The eddyNCDT 3005 is a new and powerful eddy current measurement system for quick and high precision displacement measurements. The system consists of a sensor, a compact controller and an integrated cable, and is factory-calibrated for ferro- and non-ferromagnetic materials.

As controller and sensor are temperature-compensated, it is possible to achieve high measurement accuracies even in fluctuating temperatures. The sensors are engineered for ambient temperatures up to maximum of +125 °C but can optionally be customized for temperatures from -30 °C to +180 °C. The measurement system is resistant to pressure of up to 10 bar, and is suitable for machine integration.

Ideal for Integration into Plant and Machinery

The eddyNCDT 3005 provides easy use and high measurement accuracy, offering an outstanding price/performance ratio. The sensor is well-suited for mechanical engineering applications and OEM integration. Particularly where dirt, high temperatures, pressure and oil are present, the eddyNCDT 3005 is suitable. Where high volume orders are required, the customer-specific designs can be customized to match individual requirements.

Multi-Channel Operation Without Mutual Interference

There is no need for synchronization if two or more systems operate next to each other. To operate several systems, a new frequency separation is provided, which enables the user to operate these systems in parallel without influencing one another. It is not necessary to perform tuning via synchronization cable.
