CAD Files | Eddy-Current Sensor Probes

Reliable probes for use in hostile or clean environments. Also available as vacuum compatible.

Probe Body Styles

“B” Body Style: Threaded body mounts with two nuts or threaded hole and one nut. Available in all sizes.
“C” Body Style: Smooth steel body is clamp or set-screw mounted. Available in 3 mm – 12 mm (U3-U12)

Eddy-Current Probe Model Numbers

 

 

 

 

Probe diameter determines the measurement range.
Larger Diameter = Larger Range

Probes can be ordered as vacuum compatible.

Standard Measurement Ranges

TheRangeandNear Gapare directly proportional to the diameter of the probe.

 

Custom ranges are available.

Mounting Clearances

To prevent mounting hardware or other metallic objects from interfering in precision measurements, eddy-current sensor probes must be mounted with the following clearances based on probe diameter (X).

Standard Mounting

Counterbore Mounting

Probe Operating Environment

Standard Probes come with PUR (Polyurethane) jacketed cables. High Temperature Probes have FEP jackets.

Other temperature ranges may be possible.Contact us for more information.

Standard Probes: IP67

High Temperature Probes: IP63

  • U3 Probe
    • Standard Probe: -25°C to +125°C | High Temperature Version Not Available

  • U5-18 Probes
    • Standard Probes: -25°C to +125°C | High Temperature Probes: -25°C to +200°C

  • U25-50 Probes
    • Standard Probes: -25°C to +125°C | High Temperature Probes: -25°C to +175°C


Probe Cables

Standard probes have PUR (polyurethane) jackets. High-Temperature probes have FEP jackets. FEP cables can be custom ordered for standard temperature range probes.

 

 

 

 

More details on probe cabling are available in our Eddy-Current Probe Cabling Considerations TechNote.

Armored Cable

Armored cable is available on 12 mm (U12) and larger probes.
