Test instruments supplied to the civil engineering industry can be used to survey the mechanical properties of soil and rock condition of civil engineering sites prior to construction, alongside laboratory testing of new materials.

Linear displacement transducers compliment data logging electronics on testing machines to replace the use of manual dial gauges and thus reduce the risk of error, creating a cost-and time-efficient alternative. A key requirement for this was to match the output signal of the existing electronic equipment. The transducers’ pre-travel also had to be reduced to an absolute minimum to aid mechanical interfacing.


Soway DC displacement transducer has a friction-free core incorporating LVDT technology as the measuring source. Soway’s ability to be flexible and adapt to different environments and applications drove the success of the application.
