Linear displacement transducer for original equipment manufacturers

Ametek's Gemco 955 eBrik II Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) is designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and uses magnetostrictive position-sensing technology.


Ametek's Gemco 955 eBrik II Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) is designed specifically for original equipment manufacturers and uses magnetostrictive position-sensing technology. Courtesy: AmetekAmetek's Gemco 955 eBrik II Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) has a connector end cap and is designed  for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and targeted to the market for linear potentiometers found in plastics, tire and rubber, web tensioning, factory automation and hydroelectric operations. It also uses magnetostrictive position-sensing technology that is designed to offer accurate and reliable absolute position indication along with high resolution and precision repeatability. The 955 eBrik II LDT is resistant to contaminants and environmental conditions and is IP67 rated.

The 955 eBrik II LDT is available in stroke lengths from 1-in. to 74 in. long. The sensor offers field programmable zero and span settings and features an electronic diagnostic feedback that is transmitted through the analog output so the host controller can tell if the device has failed or moved out of the programmed range. An anodized aluminum extrusion houses the sensing element and electronics. The magnet moves over the sensing element that interpolates the position and converts it to a readable output. Typical applications for the 955 eBrik II LDT include plastic injection molding, extrusion equipment, tire and rubber, hydraulic stamping presses, die casting, lumber and forest product equipment, material handling, web tensioning, and factory automation.
