The Gemco 955 Series BRIK linear position sensor, also known as Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT), is a series of linear position sensors developed to meet the most demanding processing challenges in the industry.
The 955 Series is easy to install and set up, the advanced Magnetostrictive position-sensing technology and design offers absolute position feedback. A magnet assembly moves over the sensing element that determines the position and converts it to a readable output. The BRIK is a self-contained unit and does not have a can or head assembly and works virtually without wear. The electronics are fully incorporated in the sensor; which is less than one inch tall. It is available in analog, digital and quadrature outputs.
This linear position sensor is a cost-effective replacement to limit and proximity sensors and linear potentiometers. Applications include presses, injection molding, web tensioning, tire and rubber, roll positioning and many more.
- 6 different models
- Analog (Voltage & Current)
- Digital Outputs (Start/Stop, PWM & Control Pulse)
- Sensor Length up to 180"
