Position Sensor Outfits Ophthalmic Ultrasound Systems

The MD 188 Series sub-miniature LVDT position sensor serves as a critical component in the probes found in Eye Cubed ophthalmic ultrasound systems used to image the eye and tissues around and behind it. The ophthalmic ultrasound sector probe of the Eye Cubed utilizes one MD 188 Series LVDT linear position transducer to send a signal to the console that allows the ultrasound image to be accurately displayed on screen. The ultrasound transducer is moved back and forth by a motor to send an array of sound beams into the eye. While miniature in size to fit into the probe, the LVDT position sensor operates reliably over millions of cycles without wear or signal quality degradation. Ultra-low-mass cores allow use for high response dynamic measurements. MACRO SENSORS, Pennsauken, NJ. (856) 662-8000.
