Linear Displacement Transducer from AMETEK


A non-contact Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) from AMETEK Automation & Process Technologies offers greater durability and consistency than traditional potentiometers. The magnetostrictive technology of the new Gemco 955 eBrik has no moving parts to wear out and does not exhibit problems common to linear potentiometers.

Gemco 955 eBrik linear displacement transducer from AMETEK Automation & Process Technologies provides accurate continuous position feedback on automated equipment.

The eBrik is designed to provide accurate continuous position feedback when installed on automated factory and processing machinery. Industry applications include plastic injection molding and extrusion equipment, tire and rubber, die casting, web tensioning, material handling, hydroelectric power generation and hydraulic/pneumatic cylinder actuation.

The sensor offers field programmable zero and span settings, plus electronic diagnostic feedback transmitted through the analog output. It is accurate to ±0.03% of stroke with repeatability to .001%. With a rugged, IP67 rated aluminum enclosure, the transducer is shock resistant and operates reliably in damp, dirty and extreme temperature applications.

With shock and water resistant IP67 rated housing, the Gemco 955 eBrik linear displacement transducer performs reliably in hydroelectric power generating equipment.

The self-contained LDT is less than 2.54 cm (1”) in height, including all electronics. It is available in stroke lengths from 100 mm to 1825 mm (1” to 72”) with analog output signals of 0-10 VDC or 4-20mA. Standard 5-pin cordsets allow easy installation. An optional sliding magnet accommodates misalignment.
