COMPACT GEMCO® LINEAR DISPLACEMENT TRANSDUCER
AMETEK Factory Automation (www.AmetekFactoryAutomation.com) has introduced a rugged, high-accuracy linear displacement transducer in a compact rod-style package. The new GEMCO® 958A Compact Housing LDT is less than 3.05 cm (1.2”) in depth, making it appropriate for hydraulic cylinder applications where traditional rod-style transducers will not fit. It is simpler to install and service than embedded-style sensors.
Industry-leading tolerances – 1,000Gs shock resistance and 30Gs vibration resistance – assure long operating life in the most demanding applications. Made entirely from stainless steel, the LDTs can be used in food and caustic applications, They can withstand cold water power washing for use in agricultural and other challenging environments.
High accuracy combined with 16-bit output resolution provides reliable, absolute position feedback to help automate today’s sophisticated machinery. Programmable zero and span points allow users to adjust the output to exactly match their requirements.
Magnetostrictive technology gives absolute analog position feedback, accurate to 0.04% of the programmable sensing distance. It can withstand the conditions traditionally associated with hydraulic cylinders: operating pressures up to 5000 PSI and spikes to 10,000 PSI with response times in the milliseconds.
AMETEK Factory Automation is a leader in continuous linear and rotary position sensing and level gauging. It is a unit of AMETEK Sensors, Test and Calibration, which is a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electric motors with annual sales of approximately US$4.0 billion.
