Gemco 959CT is an introductory rod-style linear displacement transducer. The position sensor is designed with stainless-steel construction and is ideal for caustic applications and machines with high-cycle rates. The non-contact design allows this LDT to be used in highly repetitive applications without mechanical wear.
Gemco’s 959CT features auto-tuning capability, which allows the LDT to sense a magnet other than the standard ring magnet and adjust its internal signal strength accordingly. This is very beneficial when replacing a linear transducer in a hydraulic cylinder where the brand of the installed magnet is not known.
The housing of the linear displacement transducer is less than 2” in depth, allowing for installation in applications where traditional rod-style transducers will not fit, or in applications where customers want to simplify installation and serviceability of the sensor. This linear displacement transducer is built to withstand severe environmental conditions, and a loss of power will not cause the unit to lose position information or require re-homing.
