FEATURES & FUNCTIONALITY

The Ultimate in Rotary Sensor Reliability

Woodward’s Rotary Variable Differential Transformer (RVDT) position sensors provide unsurpassed reliability and durability for rotary motion sensing applications. RVDTs are commonly used for flight-critical command and feedback applications such as:

 

  • Cockpit Controls 
  • Control Surface Feedback 
  • Flap, Slat, Spoiler, and Horizontal Stabilizer Position
  • Nosewheel Feedback
  • Thrust Reverser and Power Lever Angle (PLA)
  • Reservoir and Cable Transducers

 

Woodward RVDTs are manufactured using the highest quality winding, drivetrain, and structural materials. Thermally matched material selection ensures long life and performance stability over a wide range of environmental conditions. Woodward offers multi-channel redundancy in tandem (end-to-end) or narrow-package cluster configurations. Integral gearing can provide an extended operating range to 900 revolutions.

A complete portfolio of rigging options and mechanical interfaces is available for adaptation to suit any installation requirement.
