Paper Abstract

In this paper a new type of large displacement eddy current sensor is developed to overcome the three main disadvantages of the traditional eddy current senor. For a traditional sensor, the measurement range is limited and less than one half of the diameter of the measuring coil. The output is high sensitivity to the changes of the target material and the cable length connected between the probe and the preamplifier. When the material or the cable length changed, it is necessary to readjust the preamplifier. The probe of the new eddy current sensor has three coaxial measuring coils, one is an exciting coil and the other two are receiving coils. The diameter of measuring coils is (Phi) 11 mm. The measurement range of this sensor is 40mm and almost four times of the diameter of the coil. The form of differential input and feedback amplification is used in signal amplifier. Thus the effect of the common modules, such as the changes of the target material and the cable length, can be counteracted well.
