Eddy current sensors in tribology testers
Eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used for various measurement tasks in tribology testers of the ITR in Clausthal. They withstand the harshest ambient conditions there as they measure directly on the shaft in the tester. A tester with water lubrication and a tester which examines plain bearings for the automotive industry have already been realised. The position of the test bearing case and the relative movement between the rotor and the test bearing is detected in the tester using eddy current sensors.
