AMETEK Offers Digital Version Of Gemco 953 Series VMAX Linear Displacement Transducer Technology


CLAWSON, MI - The new Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) GEMCO 953S Series VMax Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) from AMETEK Automation & Process Technologies is designed and built to offer absolute continuous position feedback under the most extreme conditions.

The GEMCO 953S VMAX is ideally suited for the most demanding process automation applications, providing unmatched reliability and durability regardless of the application environment. That includes shock, vibration, extreme temperatures or exposure to contaminants. The 953S VMAX LDT is shock resistant to 1,000 Gs, vibration-resistant to 30 Gs and is IP68 rated.

The fully digital LDT offers accurate and reliable absolute position indication with high resolution and precision repeatability. It overcomes the resolution and signal limitations of analog LDTs by offering up to 1 micron resolution and a stable position feedback for cable runs up to 1,500 feet from the host controller. Applications include lumber and forest products equipment, steel mills, primary and secondary metals processing such as stamping, roll forming and die-casting, rubber and plastic injection-molding, extrusion equipment, and material handling machinery.

The GEMCO 953S VMAX LDT is easy to install and set up. It features the latest generation of magnetostrictive position-sensing technology. Numerous configurations are available to meet specific end user requirements.

The GEMCO 953A (analog), 953D (digital) and 953S (SSI) VMAX LDT offer active measuring range of up to 300 inches, and wide power supply voltages ranging from 7 to 30 VDC, analog output units offer programmable zero and span. All units feature visual and output signal diagnostic feedback and utilize standard off-the-shelf cord sets for maximum value. A tri-color LED indicator verifies proper operation and distinct diagnostics for quick troubleshooting. Their low power consumption (1 watt typical) allows direct connection to displays and control interface modules.

GEMCO LDTs are known for their flawless performance in extreme environmental conditions and are the preferred product for fast and accurate continuous linear position feedback.
