Window frame deflection!

LVDTs and load cells used to check window frame deflections 

A combination of Linear Variable Displacement Transducers (LVDTs) and load cells can be employed to measure deflection in various components of window frames.

RDP Electronics Ltd offers a comprehensive range of both LVDTs and load cells that are used to obtain force versus displacement data for various parts of the frame structure. Analysis of this data provides information enabling the window manufacturer to be sure that both during the installation of the frame, as well as when it is in application, does not cause the aperture to change shape significantly. This is important to avoid exerting pressure on the glazing, which could result in the glass shattering.
