Penny & Giles ICT820

8-30Vdc or 5Vdc Contactless In-Cylinder Linear Transducer – CAN SAE J1939 Output.

The Penny & GIles ICT820 Contactless In-Cylinder Linear Transducer combines the best features associated with LVDTs and potentiometers into one rugged, contactless and highly reliable displacement transducer with the addition of a CAN SAE J1939 interface. Operating from 8 – 30Vdc or 5Vdc supply, the electronics provide a CAN SAE J1939 output over the selected transducer measurement range. With a transducer body diameter of only 8mm the ICT820 is ideal for installation into hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder applications where space is at a premium. The ICT820 is ideal for use on small-bore actuators and offers a choice of internal or threaded external flange mounting configurations to suit tie-rod, welded and rear clevis-mounted cylinder types in stroke ranges from 25 to 1000mm. Two core configurations also provide the designer the following options’; sleeved core and threaded core.
