Reliable position sensing in small bore cylinders
Penny & Giles has launched a new in-cylinder linear displacement transducer for small bore mobile and static hydro-pneumatic actuators. The ICT050 provides reliable, fit-and-forget position sensing of the cylinder rod in actuators with strokes up to 500mm. It is a robust, non-contact transducer that works on an inductive coil principle, with virtually infinite resolution and is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 200degC and working pressures up to 500 bar.
ICT050 has a very efficient body-to-stroke ratio. The overall length is only slightly longer than the working stroke length, facilitating a much more compact installation than can be effected with traditional linear transducer designs. The stroke range covers 25mm to 500mm stroke actuators and the transducer body diameter is just 5.4mm.
