Ametek Factory Automation Rod-style linear displacement transducer
The Gemco 958A is a rugged, accurate, programmable zero and span, auto-tuning, noncontact linear displacement transducer (LDT) in a compact-housing, rod-style package. Less than 1.2 in in depth, the transducer can be installed in applications in which a rod-style transducer typically would not fit or in applications in which customers want simplified installation and serviceability. The transducer is made entirely from stainless steel and uses magnetorestrictive technology to give absolute position feedback, accurate to 0.04% of the programmable sensing distance. The completely absolute LTD will not lose position information or require re-zeroing from a power loss.
