The PT8420 with its 4-20 mA feedback signal, is ideal for
monitoring the stroke of a hydraulic cylinder and other applications requiring position data acquistion in harsh environments.
As a member of our family of NEMA 4-rated cable-extension
transducers, the PT8420 provides a feedback signal that is
proportional to the linear movement of a traveling stainless-steel extension cable. Simply mount the body of the
transducer to a fixed surface and attach the extension cable
to the moving object.

simply changing the dip-switch
settings found on the internal
signal board. After the settings
have been changed, adjustment of the Zero and Span
trimpots will be required to
precisely match signal values to

VLS Option - Free Release Protection
The patented Celesco Velocity Limiting System
(VLS) is an option for PT8000 Series cable extension transducers that limits cable retraction to a
safe 40 to 55 inches per second.
How To Configure Model Number for VLS Option:
VLS 8420 0010
0020
0025
0030
0040
0050
0060
The VLS option prevents the measuring cable
from ever reaching a damaging velocity during
an accidental free release. This option is ideal for
mobile applications that require frequent cable
disconnection and reconnection. It prevents expensive unscheduled downtime due to accidental
cable mishandling or attachment failure.
VLS is NOT available for medium and high cable
tension options or 2, 5 and 15-inch stroke ranges.
