Although the LVDT is a displacement sensor, many other physical quantities can be sensed by converting displacement to the desired quantity via thoughtful arrangements. Several examples will be given.

  • Displacement
  - extensometers, temperature transducers, butterfly valve control, servo valve displacement sensing
  • Deflection of Beams, Strings, or Rings
  - load cells, force transducers, pressure transducers
