In more and more demanding displacement sensor applications the need for multiple channels, small size, digital outputs and low power consumption is becoming paramount. Lion Precision has developed a new digital eddy current driver for these demanding applications.

Product Overview

Lion Precision’s ECD360 is a miniaturized digital eddy current driver with up to 6 channels. The driver is available as either an easily mountable board for installation in a control system or in a compact 95 x 105 mm (3.74” x 4.13”) enclosure. With 6 channels operating it draws less than 4 watts of power. It has an SPI (LVDS) digital output, as well as a USB output, and multiple systems can be synchronized to prevent crosstalk between sensors.

The ECD360 digital driver works with all of Lion Precision’s rugged eddy current probes. This enables ranges from as small as 0.25 mm to 15 mm. It has bandwidths from 100 Hz to 15 kHz which are user adjustable via the digital interface.

Full specs will be released soon.

Key Benefits

  • Ranges from 0.25 mm to 15 mm
  • Probe can be used in wet, dirty environments
  • User-Selectable Bandwidth/Resolution 100 Hz, 1 kHz, 10 kHz, 15 kHz
  • Probes can be ordered as vacuum compatible



Typical specifications for standard targets and probes. Actual values depend on probe, target, and calibration. Specifications assume a target area at least three times the diameter of the probe.
