vibrating wire transducer

vibrating wire transducer

[′vī‚brād·iŋ ¦wīr tranz′dü·sər]
(engineering)
A device for measuring ocean depth, consisting of a very fine tungsten wire stretched in a magnetic field so that it vibrates at a frequency that depends on the tension in the wire, and thereby on pressure and depth.
