Magnetostrictive Position Sensors

MTS Sensors has expanded its R-Series of robust, high performance magnetostrictive position sensors with a new device which has the capacity to deliver superior reliability and industry-leading accuracy in even the most demanding work environments. Utilizing the company's proprietary Temposonics® technology, the RT4 is a linear position measurement solution that features 2 independent sensor elements - each of which has a measuring length of 50 mm to 2540 mm (2" to 100"). Targeted at use in steel processing plants, lumber mills and power generation sites, this fully redundant position sensing product employs a Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI), which means that data transfer is less susceptible to the presence of electro-magnetic interference.

In addition, the IP68-rated enclosure protects against the threat of liquid ingress. The RT4's detached electronics can be mounted up to 600 mm (23.6") away from the sensing environment allowing the electronics to be kept further from sources of potential harm. A temperature range that reaches up to 100˚C (212˚F) is supported for the sensor rod and interconnection cables.

"Thanks to the combination of detached electronics and redundancy function, the RT4 sets itself apart from conventional position sensing hardware," states Matt Hankinson, Technical Marketing Manager at MTS Sensors. "This unit is optimized to function in extremely challenging application surroundings while maintaining high performance." Through MTS Sensor's ground-breaking Temposonics® magnetostrictive sensor technology, precise, non-contact position measurement data can be acquired. Temposonics® based devices can deal with the exacting mechanical stresses found in modern industrial settings without being subject to wear and tear.
