Courtesy: Penny + GilesThe ICT800 and ICT820 in-cylinder linear transducers from Penny + Giles are designed for intelligent mobile hydraulics. The ICT800 and ICT820 models combine the best features of the company's linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) and potentiometer technologies into a single, rugged and reliable displacement transducer which, using contactless inductive coil technology, means both provide an almost limitless and maintenance-free working life with a class-leading body-to-stroke length ratio. Additionally, the ICT800 and ICT820 models have signal conditioning integrated into the transducer's flange, which simplifies installation and eliminates interconnecting cables that can reduce the reliability of a control system.

The ICT800 features 12bit resolution and operates from either an 8 to 30 V dc (unregulated) supply or a 5 V dc (regulated) supply and provides an absolute analogue output signal of either 0.5 to 4.5 V dc or 0.2 to 4.8 V dc over the selected measurement range. 

The ICT820 features 13bit resolution with a CAN SAE J1939 interface and also operates from an 8 to 30 V dc or 5 V dc supply. The ICT820 also is factory configured for measurement range and low-high signal output position and has a choice of five transmission rates, three frame rates, and multiple node ID options for the interface. 

The ICT800 and 820 in-cylinder linear transducers have a stainless steel construction and an operating temperature range from -40 to +125 C. They are designed to survive in environments prone to extreme vibration and shock and are suitable for use in a wide range of system fluids that include mineral, synthetic, fire retardant, water glycol and eco-fluids.
