Position Sensors

Offering an economic alternative to wear-prone displacement measuring systems, MTS’ Temposonics E-Series family of linear position sensors allows for cost-effective and efficient use of magnetostrictive transducers in standard applications with typical requirements. Completely redesigned, the position sensors provide 0.01 mm resolution and repeatability as well as 0.03 % full scale linearity deviation for defined stroke lengths from 50 up to 2500 mm. They feature analogue or start/stop outputs. To further save costs and space, the analogue models are capable of reporting two positions simultaneously when using two position magnets. M12 plugs allow for secure connection of the sensors through reasonably priced overmolded cables. With their rugged construction, the sensors achieve a minimum of IP67 ratings as well as 100 g shock and 10 g vibration resistance across the product family. When used with a suitable connector, the EH’s hermetically sealed stainless steel housing offers IP69K protection. Depending on to the application (for example plastics processing, woodworking or handling industries) four sensor designs can fulfill every requirement. The stainless-steel Model EH provides a compact, rugged rod-style package with either a 7 or 10 mm tube. The profile version EP operates with the magnet floating over the sensor’s electronic head. Housing the rod-and-cylinder the ER sensor has improved sealing and can be installed in any orientation at lengths up to 1500 mm. For space-critical applications, the company has developed the low-profile version EL sensor - with a height of 15 mm along the measuring range – that fits into the tightest of spaces. All models provide backward compatibility with the previous versions of the E-Series.
