Reliable, Robust Sensors For Nuclear, Steam, and Gas Power Generation

NewTek designs and manufactures Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) position sensors used in the power generation and energy industries.

LVDT position sensors provide critical position measurements on steam and gas turbines.  Because of their reliability and resilience in harsh environments, LVDT position sensors are the well-established method to monitor and control valves, servos, turbine shell expansion, turbine vibration, and more.

NewTek provides standard and custom position sensors for these critical and demanding applications.  The HAR and HATR hermetically sealed LVDTs are hermetically sealed to IP-68, resilient under shock and vibration, have a wide operating temperature range,  and have proven designs with superior reliability and a near-infinite life expectancy.
