Magtrol’s line of Displacement Transducers provide contactless measurement of absolute piston position in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders and other applications. Their robust construction, large insensitivity to shocks and very long life (due to no moving parts and therefore no wear of components) make them both cost effective and very reliable. Magtrol transducers offer a wide range of operational temperatures and admissible pressure resistance for even the most demanding applications.
To complete your displacement measurement system Magtrol offers the CST 113 Signal Converter, designed specifically for transducers delivering a signal of 4 to 20 mA. Either a voltage-based signal (I/U conversion) or a current-based signal (I/I) can be chosen as the converter output, along with signal inversion if required. A large variety of offset and gain values can be selected, matching all sorts of specific applications. The use of micro switches (DIP switches) and potentiometers enable easy on-site adjustments and the independent settings make it possible to calibrate the CST 113 in one displacement, from the minimal to the maximum position of the jack.
