linear position sensor / contactless / potentiometer / analog
Contact / non-contact:
The ICT050 Contactless In-Cylinder Linear Transducer (from the Penny & Giles product brand) combines the best features associated with LVDTs and potentiometers into one sturdy, contactless and highly reliable displacement transducer, with a body diameter of only 5.4mm this sensor is the smallest transducer package we offer, and is ideal for installation into hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder applications where space is at a premium.
The ICT050 is ideal for use on small-bore actuators and offers a choice of internal or threaded flange mounting configurations (including SAE1926/2 and ISO6149/2 compatible thread forms), to suit tie-rod, welded and rear clevis-mounted cylinder types in stroke ranges from 25 to 500mm, this sensor comes with either a Sleeved, Threaded or Force Fit core.
Signal conditioning is carried out by separate electronics packages (EICT or EICTM) which can be located up to 10 metres away from the harsh environment in which the linear transducer may be required to operate. Operating from 10 to 60Vdc, the electronics modules can provide a wide range of voltage output signals as well as a 4-20mA current output option or digital PWM signal. The electronics are contained in a high strength housing that is sealed up to IP66 or IP68 if its metals.
