Cable transducer series GCA5

Save as PDF

The absolute cable transducers of the GCA5 series by Baumer feature a measuring range up to 4700 mm. The integrated CANopen® interface provides redundant position from redundant magnetic sensing and hence simplifies function monitoring at control level. Housing protection IP 67 (cable inlet IP 54), shock resistance up to 50 g, vibration proof up to 10 g and the extended temperature range from -40 to +85 °C make the cable transducers particularly robust and resistant against temperature fluctuations and all kinds of soiling.
