Are you looking for digital output options for your systems? We have summarized below the 3 options available from Lion Precision both for Eddy Current and Capacitive sensors, their benefits, and their specs.
Eddy Current Sensors
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.
Lion Precision’s ECD310 is a miniaturized digital eddy current driver available with 1 or 2 channels. The driver is designed as an easily mountable board for installation in a control system. It has an EtherCAT digital output, as well as an SPI output. The channels are synchronized, preventing crosstalk between sensors.
The ECD310 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 that are adjustable via the digital interface.
*Dependent on probe, range, and bandwidth
The CPL590 is a high resolution, high speed digital capacitive driver for displacement measurement applications requiring the highest resolution. The small 2U size reduces the space requirements for mounting and the digital capability allows for up to 4 range calibrations for the probe. The CPL590 works with all of the capacitive probes.
