Penny + Giles – a product brand of Curtiss-Wright Controls Industrial – has introduced the ICT800 and ICT820 in-cylinder linear transducers suitable for intelligent mobile hydraulics. 

  • Combines features of company’s LVDT and potentiometer technologies into a single, rugged and reliable displacement transducer
  • Uses contactless inductive coil technology to provide almost limitless and maintenance-free working life with a body-to-stroke length ratio
  • Signal conditioning integrated into flange simplifies installation and eliminates interconnecting cables that can reduce the reliability of a control system
  • Features 12 bit resolution
  • Operates from either an 8 to 30V DC (unregulated) supply or a 5V DC (regulated) supply
  • Provides absolute analogue output signal of either 0.5 to 4.5V DC or 0.2 to 4.8V DC over the selected measurement range
  • Factory configured for measurement range, output range and low-high output position
  • On-board microcontroller linearizes transducer coil signal to less than ±0.1% non-linearity
  • ICT820 features 13 bit resolution with a CAN SAE J1939 interface and offers choice of five Baud Rates, three Frame Rates and multiple Node ID options for the interface
  • Use of integrated CAN interface allows direct connection to fieldbus and operates as a slave device, without the need to use cost intensive I/O or gateway modules
  • Features sensor body diameters of 8 mm, making well suited for small-bore cylinder applications or for installation into hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders where space is at a premium
  • Offers choice of internal or threaded external flange mounting configurations to suit tie-rod, welded and rear clevis-mounted cylinder types with stroke ranges from 25 to 1,000 mm
  • Two core configurations are available
  • Sleeved core version allows cylinder rods to be easily machined to accommodate the sleeve and provides option of retro-fitting existing servo-cylinders with an upgrade to ICT technology
  • Threaded-core versions provide smallest body size available and easiest installation, requiring only minimal machining
  • Constructed in stainless-steel
  • Features working pressure of 670 bar (10,000 psi) and an operating temperature range from -40 to 125 C
  • Survives in environments prone to extremes of vibration and shock
  • Suitable for use in a wide range of system fluids that include mineral, synthetic, fire retardant, water glycol and eco-fluids
