Currently, Kavlico force sensors are used in a multitude of commercial and military aircraft applications. Kavlico is the largest provider of aircraft force sensors.
Kavlico force transducers consist of internally placed LVDT(s) and a precisely machined spring. When a force is applied via the clevis or rod end bearing, the spring deflection changes the position of the moving element (armature/core) of the internal LVDT. The voltage output and signal is calibrated to correspond to the force input. Kavlico force sensors can be supplied as single or multiple channel devices, and all Kavlico force sensors are customized for the load and performance requirements of each platform.
