Compact Linear Displacement Transducer

Model 958A compact housing linear displacement transducer measures less than 3.05 cm (1.2 in.) deep, making it appropriate for hydraulic cylinder applications where traditional rod-style transducers will not fit. It is designed to be simpler to install and service than embedded-style sensors while offering 1,000 Gs shock resistance and 30Gs vibration resistance, ensuring longer operating life. Made entirely from stainless steel, the LDT can be used in food and caustic applications. It also withstands cold water power washing. 16-bit output resolution provides reliable, absolute position feedback to help automate sophisticated machinery. Programmable zero and span points allow users to adjust the output to match their requirements. Magnetostrictive technology gives analog position feedback, accurate to 0.04% of the programmable sensing distance. It can withstand the conditions traditionally associated with hydraulic cylinders: operating pressures up to 5,000 psi and spikes to 10,000 psi with response times in milliseconds.
