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.
The transducer provides a direct 4-20 mA output signal corresponding to the measuring range, as well as VDC temperature output. As an option Magtrol offers the CST 113 Signal Converter, which allows the complete chain to be calibrated according to the specific needs, either in current or voltage output.
The DI series of displacement transducers were developed principally for OEM applications in the hydraulic industry. They enable the direct and reliable measurement of the position of:
- Hydraulic Cylinder
- Steam Inlet Valves
- Stone Crusher
- Servo Controls
- Control Valves
Their design is such that the installation cost is kept to a minimum. This cost-effectiveness results from the limitation to one fixed standard signal of 4 to 20 mA with very precise determination of the measurement interval (from 0 to full scale) on the sensing element.
Displacement sensors are mounted inside hydraulic cylinders. The sensors are highly resistant to vibration, pressure (up to 450 bars) and have an excellent behavior on thermal compensation.

Steam Turbine – Power Regulation
Displacement Transducers are used in hydraulic servo motors to regulate the position control of steam inlet valves.
