RUGGED LINEAR DISPLACEMENT TRANSDUCER DESIGNED
FOR LONG LIFE IN DEMANDING MOBILE HYDRAULIC APPLICATIONS

New GEMCO® 958A provides industry-leading
shock resistance of 1000Gs and vibration tolerance of 30Gs

AMETEK Factory Automation (www.AmetekFactoryAutomation.com) has introduced an embedded linear displacement transducer (LDT) with industry-leading shock and vibration resistance for demanding mobile hydraulic applications. With shock resistance of 1000Gs and vibration tolerance of 30Gs, the new GEMCO® 958A transducer provides long life in extreme operating environments.

Applications:

  • Hydraulic cylinder OEMs
  • Heavy duty commercial vehicles
  • Agricultural equipment
  • Construction equipment
  • Mining equipment
  • Forestry harvesting
  • Railroad grinding
  • Material handling
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Transportation
  • Control instrumentation

The 958A is designed for dependable, high-accuracy performance in mission-critical mobile heavy equipment applications. It offers absolute accuracy and reliability with high resolution and precision repeatability.

The transducer uses the latest generation of AMETEK’s field-proven magnetostrictive position-sensing technology to give absolute analog position, accurate to 0.04% of the programmable sensing distance. A variety of analog outputs are available to meet user needs.

The rugged, rod style LDT fits entirely inside a hydraulic or clevis style cylinder. This protects the transducer from outside conditions and allows use where there is no room for external devices.

It can be powered from 8 to 30 VDC at 1.6 watts, making it easy to fit into a variety of systems. It includes a unique built-in diagnostics capability that displays the health of the unit and helps aid in troubleshooting problems if they occur.

The 958A is easy to install and set up. Units can be ordered in span lengths from 2” (50mm) to 100” (2540mm) and come standard with either integral cable assemblies, bare leads or M12 style connectors.

AMETEK Factory Automation is a leader in continuous linear and rotary position sensing and level gauging. It is a unit of AMETEK Sensors, Test and Calibration, which is a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electric motors with annual sales of approximately US$4.0 billion.
