Linear Displacement Transducers
956 BLOK Housing Option
The 956 BLOK is an optional housing for the 955 Brik LDT. This housing adds a chamber, magnet and piston. The streamlined anodized aluminum extrusion houses the sensing element and electronics. The piston assembly moves over the sensing element that determines the position and converts it to a readable output. The BLOK is a self-contained unit and does not have a can or a head assembly. Units can be ordered in span lengths up to 36 inches long in 0.1 inch increments. This transducer can be mounted vertically or horizontally in an application. Optional spherical rod ends are available.
