GCA/GCD Series (Spring Loaded Design)T
GCA/GCD Series gage head with stainless steel construction enables the GCA/GCD performs in environments containing moisture, dirt and other contaminants. Electronic components are hermetically sealed for added protection against hostile conditions. These are heavy duty, long stroke units with ranges up to ±2.0″ (50mm). Maximum spring force is typically 8 oz (226.8g), dependent upon probe position. The working end or probe has a removable chrome plated, hardened tool steel tip threaded to the probe with a 4-48 UNF-2A threading. Schaevitz® replacement and alternate contact tips are available. Tips are also interchangeable with AGD dial indicator tips.
Internal construction prevents the core and shaft from rotating as they move longitudinally. Units terminating into connectors allow for easy cable replacement if damage should occur. Installation and adjustment are facilitated by external threading; locknuts are provided.
GC series gage heads are available in AC and DC versions. AC-operated units utilize external signal conditioning (see the Instrumentation section of this website); DC-operated units incorporate the core, LVDT and all necessary electronics in one housing. Use of monolithic, surface mount circuitry eliminates most of the volume, weight and cost of conventional AC excitation, amplification and demodulation equipment.
