Lee D Case said:
I believe Linear Variable Differential Transformer is the correct usage. The device is an air core transformer with (usually) a sine wave excitation applied to the center-tapped primary and the output taken from the secondary.


I use the same etymology, as does Schaevitz - who literally wrote THE book on the LVDT.

BTW any LVDT I've worked with has an isolated primary. The secondary coils are placed one at each end of the primary. The primary is not centre tapped.
