LVDTs for railway!

Special LVDTs meet the rigorous demands of monitoring railway tracks
Continuous welded railway tracks can variously be subjected to stress or compression as temperatures change, or to misalignment as movement takes place. In these situations RDP transducers can help play an important monitoring role.

Engineering companies conducting tests on rail track for expansion, movement and alignment frequently use LVDTs supplied by RDP Electronics Ltd. Special versions of LVDTs are designed to be installed in carriers making them more resistant to damage when bolted directly to the side of the rail. RDP LVDTs are the most suitable sensor for applications where they may be exposed to shock and vibration as well as having good resistance to climatic conditions such as temperature water and resistance to corrosive fluids.
