whole system monitoring solutions

Hydraulic LVDT SensorEdaphic Scientific is a one-stop shop for a whole system monitoring solution. We provide LVDT, displacement and position systems including sensors, data loggers and internet access to data.

Our systems not only support LVDT, displacement and position sensors, but related sensors such as temperature, pressure, and more.

At Edaphic Scientific we want to work with you from the start of your project through to its completion. We can provide:

  • Assistance with project and experimental design
  • Procurement of all monitoring equipment, including sensors, data loggers and data management software. Edaphic Scientific is a one-stop shop where we can source and find any necessary equipment for your project from our preferred suppliers or third party suppliers
  • Installation and training
  • On-going assistance with data interpretation and equipment maintenance
  • Data correction and analysis, including statistical analysis with the R-package
  • Report and publication preparation including tables, figures, graphs, and manuscript writing


advanced data collection and management solutions

Edaphic Scientific recognises the need for flexible and adaptable sensor and data logging solutions for experimental or environmental monitoring projects.

Data can be downloaded directly in the field from data loggers. A direct connection between the data loggers and your computer, via a USB cable, can be used for manual downloading of data.

Alternatively, data can be downloaded over the internet on your iPhone, iPad or desktop computer with the Eagle.io cloud-based, data management software solutions. Through this remote based downloading capabilities, you can download, view and manage your data, and system, anywhere in the world and at anytime.

The LVDT-IHDL-P position sensor is an inductive position switch (LVDT, linear variable differential transformer) with the precision of a sensor.

The change in the travel of the valve plunger in the hydraulic cylinder triggers a switching operation.

  • Pressure range: up to 350 bar
  • Displacement: 4mm
  • Protection degree: IP65
  • Contact type: normally open | normally closed
  • Adjustable switching point

  • Pressure range: up to 350 bar
  • Supply voltage: 24 VDC
  • Displacement: 6mm
  • Protection degree: IP65
  • Housing diameter: 4mm
  • Outputs: 0.5-4.5 VDC
