Displacement Sensors

KYOWATMdisplacement transducers are based on strain gage or potentiometer as sensing element, and receive minimal aging, thereby enabling long-term stable measurement. The displacement transducers are available in rated capacities ranging from 2 mm to 5 metres. KYOWA displacement measurement system is shown in below system overview.



Clip-type Displacement Transducer

  • Measurement range: 2mm, 5 mm
  • Suitable for measure crack opening displacement of materials, complying with ASTM standard.

Model: DTC-A

Displacement Transducer (Tension & Compression)

  • Measurement range: 30 mm to 200 mm
  • Both Tension & Compression


Small-size Displacement Transducer

  • Measurement range: 5 mm to 100 mm
  • Requires small application force of 1.5 N to 4 N.

Model: DTH-A

Dial Gage-equipped Displacement Transducer

  • Measurement range: 10 mm to 50 mm
  • Possible to read displacement directly by scale.

Model: DT-D

Potentiometer-type Displacement Transducer

  • Measurement range: 500 mm to 5,000 mm
  • Measures displacement by converting expansion/contraction of pull-out sensing wire to analogue output signal by potentiometer.

Model: DTPA-A 

Compact Three Dimensional Displacement Sensor
