The 956 BLOK is an optional Rod & Barrel style housing for the 955 BRIK Series of Linear Displacement Transducers. 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 956 BLOK is a self-contained unit and does not have a can or head assembly. All of the electronics are incorporated in the transducer which is less than 1.5 inches square. Units can be ordered in span lengths up to 36 inches long in 0.1 inch increments. The piston is designed to move effortlessly along the transducer. A variety of hardware is available for attaching the LDT to the moving portion of the process. All units are provided with a standard quick disconnect connector.

The transducer can be mounted vertically or horizontally using mounting feet or optional rod ends. The mounting feet slide on the extrusion and clamp down when tightened. This package style provides a compact and easy method of mounting for machine builders. Typical span lengths range from 4” to 36”. Consult factory for other lengths.

The 956 BLOK is designed for applications where economical continuous feedback is necessary. The sensor can be a cost effective replacement to limit and proximity sensors and linear potentiometers. Applications include presses, blow molding, injection molding, extrusion, roll positioning, wicket gates and many more.
