HC-485 SERIES – MEV Elektronik GmbH
Our Products


The HC-485 Series of heavy-duty LVDTs are self-contained, ultra precision, digital I/O devices for high performance measurements in environments containing moisture, dirt, and fluid contaminants. The HC-485 eliminates the need for expensive and error-prone analog to digital conversion by internally converting the analog LVDT signals into engineering units (imperial or metric). The result is a fully calibrated and traceable measurement device, ready for installation, and 100% field interchangeable.

Operating on 8.5 to 30 VDC supply, the HC-485 provides an addressable RS-485 (2-wire) digital output (MODBus RTU and ASCII protocols) running at 119kBd baud rate and capable of handling up to 32 devices communicating over two wires. MIN, MAX and TIR readings are sampled and stored internally at a maximum update rate of 600 samples per second, and are provided to the host on demand. A velocity output (inch or mm per second) is also available, while an internal tare (zero) function affords maximum set-up flexibility.

MEAS offers accessories and options such as mating connector plugs, imperial or metric threaded core, guided core, and captive core. The ‘EA’ (Extended Accuracy) option extends the linear stroke range to 150% with ±0.1% linearity.

Like in most of our LVDTs, the HC-485 windings are vacuum impregnated with a specially formulated, high temperature, flexible resin, and the coil assembly is potted inside its housing with a twocomponent epoxy. This provides excellent protection against hostile environments such as high vibration and shock.

Captive core option: The HC-485 features an optional captive core design that greatly simplifies installation. The core rod and bearing assembly includes a Bronze bearing on the front end for self-alignment, while a PTFE sleeve allows low-friction travel through the stainless steel boreliner (spool tube).
