Linear displacement transducer is resistant to contaminants, environmental conditions

December 12, 2005
The new GEMCO® 953 Series Vmax™ Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) offers accurate and reliable absolute position indication with high resolution and precision repeatability. The Vmax LDT is resistant to contaminants and environmental conditions and is IP68-rated. Its rugged and durable construction is designed to meet the most demanding applications, and its vibration and shock resistance ensures long product life. The unit features the latest generation of magnetostrictive position-sensing technology with factory calibrated zero point. Custom configurations are available to meet specific end user requirements. The Vmax LDT offers a programmable span, an active measuring range of up to 300 inches, and variable power supply voltages ranging from 7 to 30 VDC. The LDT features visual and electronic diagnostic feedback. A tri-color LED indicator verifies proper operation and distinct diagnostics for quick troubleshooting. Applications include steel mills, primary and secondary metals processing such as stamping, roll forming and die-casting, lumber and forest products equipment, rubber and plastic injection-molding and extrusion equipment and material handling machinery.
