Magnetostrictive position sensors
DPN WEB EXCLUSIVE: MTS Sensors has announced the R-Series sensor as the latest innovation in the Temposonics line of magnetostrictive position sensors. The R-Series is a digitally-based "smart" sensor is said to feature enhanced output capabilities and improved sensing performance and accuracy.0
The series also includes the diagnostic LEDs and external programming capabilities standard in the new product platform to ensure that sensor installation and troubleshooting efforts are kept to a minimum.
Users can expect sensing resolutions as low as 1 micron with an output linearity of ≤ √Ç¬±0.01% and repeatability of ≤ √Ç¬±0.001% of full scale. Reverse polarity and over-voltage protection to 36 Vdc will help ensure sensor failure does not occur due to mis-wiring. Enhanced packaging also offers improved shock and vibration resistance (shock, 100 g; vibration, 25 g/10-2000 Hz).
