Curtiss-Wright ICT050

Contactless In-Cylinder Linear Transducer, 5.4mm Body Diameter, 500 bar (7,500 psi) Working Pressure.

The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles), ICT050 Contactless In-Cylinder Linear Transducer combines the best features associated with LVDTs and potentiometers into one rugged, contactless and highly reliable displacement transducer.

  • Working pressure to 500 bar (7,500 psi)
  • High-temperature capability to +200°C (+392°F) [Order Code H]
  • Low-temperature capability to -55°C (-67°F) [Order Code L]
  • Small transducer body length to stroke ratio
  • Infinite resolution
  • Absolute measurement
  • Flexible mounting styles
  • Rugged stainless steel construction
  • CE approved
  • Rapid despatch of any option

With a body diameter of only 5.4mm, the ICT050 is the smallest transducer package we offer and is ideal for installation into hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder applications where space is at a premium.

The ICT050 is ideal for use on small-bore actuators and offers a choice of internal or threaded flange mounting configurations (including SAE1926/2 and ISO6149/2 compatible thread forms), to suit tie-rod, welded and rear clevis-mounted cylinder types in stroke range from 25 to 500mm. Three core configurations also provide the designer with the following options:

  • SLEEVED CORE – cylinder rods can be simply machined to accommodate the sleeve. This also gives the option of retrofitting existing servo-cylinders with an upgrade to ICT technology.
  • THREADED CORE – provides the designer with the minimum transducer body size and simplified installation requiring minimal machining.
  • FORCE FIT CORE – the core can be pressed into the cylinder rod and is retained by a tolerance ring.

With no electrical sliding contacts, the ICT050 has a working life which is almost limitless.
