The position eddy current sensors are contactless sensors made of a probe with an associated conditioner.
The Eddy Current Probe is a contactless sensor used to measure distance with a nanometric precision. Two ECP probes are available to address different strokes.
The Eddy Current Sensor conditioners manage the signal from the Eddy current probe ECP:
The gain of each channel is generally calibrated when the Eddy Current probe is embedded in the environment.
The ECS75 Eddy current probe conditioner is implemented on a 19'board and can include up to 3 independent channels. The gain of each channel is generally set when the Eddy Current Sensor is embedded in the Piezo Mechanism.
