NewTek NTC-6000 establishes digital or analog communications for new and legacy AC-LVDTs.

NewTek unveiled its NTC-6000 Qwik-Cal LVDT signal conditioner, which allows AC-LVDTs to convert position feedback into readable output for use by computers, PLCs, data acquisition systems, and data loggers. Compatible with both new and legacy AC-LVDTs, RVDT, or LVRT half-bridge sensors, the NTC-6000 offers a variety of selectable excitation frequencies, analog output types (0-10V, 0-5V, 0.5 – 4.5V, +5V, +10V, 4-20mA) as well as digital communications to a host computer via RS-485 output. The RS-485 port also supports the hot swapability of sensors by saving set-up parameters and automatic excitation synchronization for multiple unit systems.The signal conditioners also feature self-diagnose for LVDT failure and cybersecurity lockout and tamper detection to protect against hacks.
