May 17, 2017 - AMETEK Factory Automation has introduced an embedded linear displacement transducer (LDT) with shock and vibration resistance for mobile hydraulic applications. With shock resistance of 1000Gs and vibration tolerance of 30Gs, the GEMCO 958A transducer is intended to provide long life in extreme operating environments.
The 958A is designed for performance in mission-critical mobile heavy equipment applications.
The transducer uses the latest generation of AMETEK’s magnetostrictive position-sensing technology to give absolute analog position, accurate to 0.04% of the programmable sensing distance. A variety of analog outputs are available to meet user needs.
The rod style LDT fits entirely inside a hydraulic or clevis style cylinder. This protects the transducer from outside conditions and allows use where there is no room for external devices.
It can be powered from 8 to 30 VDC at 1.6 watts, making it possible to fit into a variety of systems. It includes a unique built-in diagnostics capability that displays the health of the unit and helps aid in troubleshooting problems if they occur.
Units can be ordered in span lengths from 2” (50mm) to 100” (2540mm) and come standard with either integral cable assemblies, bare leads or M12 style connectors.
