AMETEK STC, manufacturer of factory automation equipment, created a new video to explain how the technology and design behind its Gemco Linear Displacement Transducers (LDT) is suitable for many rugged applications.
Gemco’s rod style LDTs can be placed in a hydraulic cylinder without removing the cylinder from the vehicle or machine. This saves hours or even days of downtime. Due to the Automatic Gain Control (AGC) feature, a Gemco LDT can be installed with a new magnet or by reusing a previously installed magnet. Even when reusing the old magnet, the Gemco LDT will deliver very accurate measurements with programmable zero point and span.
Gemco LDTs’ accuracy, combined with the mounting options and rod lengths ranging from 2 to 300 in. makes installation in new or older equipment fast and simple.
To learn more on how to mount rod style industrial tie-rod cylinders, clevis style cylinders as well as compact housing cylinders designed to work in in confined spaces, watch the new video on the Ametek website. Learn how the Gemco 953Vmax, 958 Compact Housing and 958 Embedded Style LDTs have created a wave of updates on the position monitoring market, ensuring longer lifetime for hydraulics cylinders, and lowers the frequency of breakdowns.
