What's New


Alliance Sensors Group introduced the SS-7 series linear variable inductive transducer (LVIT), designed for subsea environments. The transducer is embedded into a hydraulic cylinder and uses the gun-drilled piston rod as a target, sensing its position without the need for a magnet. The SS-7 Series can be submerged to a depth of 12,000 feet or installed in a pressure-balanced oil filled (PBOF) chamber to provide position feedback on blow out preventers, ROVs and relief valves. The transducer features 316 stainless steel 25-mm diameter housing and can operate at up to 5,200 psi or a depth of 12,000 feet (3,000 meters). SS-7 sensors use a simple coil design rather than “time-of-flight” technology or resistant film. The SS-7 series, and its sister products ME-7, MR-7 and MHP-7, can withstand intense shock and vibration, and operate at temperatures up to 105 degrees C with the extended range option. P&GJ
