Two performance options have been added for the GEMCO 953S Series VMax Linear Displacement Transducers (LDT) from AMETEK Automation & Process Technologies (www.ametekapt.com):
- High resolution Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) output allows the LDT to measure tighter tolerances over longer cable runs.
- Mill Duty housing protects the LDT from physical and environmental damage in the most extreme conditions and adds mounting flexibility for higher production efficiency.
It is ideally suited for steel mills and tire and rubber manufacturing, providing unmatched reliability and durability regardless of environment. It is shock resistant to 1,000 Gs, vibration resistant to 30 Gs and IP68 rated.The fully digital VMax LDT offers accurate and reliable absolute position indication with high resolution and precision repeatability. The SSI output overcomes the limitations of analog LDTs by offering up to 1 micron resolution and a stable position feedback for cable runs up to 365 m (1,200 feet) from the host controller.
The series 950 Mill-Duty Housing protects the LDT from temperature, corrosives, shock, vibration, dust and debris. Additionally, it offers a simple two point mounting scheme that can compensate for lateral and / or horizontal movement of the machine while in operation.
The 950MD housing allows easy retrofitting of existing cylinders. Mounting parallel to the cylinder eliminates the need to tear down and gun drill the cylinder, reducing replacement downtime from as much as two days to as little as 45 minutes. The Mill-Duty Housing is available in lengths from 5.08 cm (2 in) to over 6.1 m (20 ft).
Easy to install and set up, the LDT features the latest generation of magnetostrictive position-sensing technology. Numerous configurations are available to meet specific end user requirements.
