MOBILE HYDRAULIC SENSORS FOR RUGGED APPLICATIONS

General DPN

MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division has announced an MH sensor suitable for use in welded and tie-rod cylinders, or space-limited cylinder applications. With a 100 g shock and 25 g vibration rating, the sensor consists of a redesigned sensor head with rugged housing and built-in electronics, a pressure-proof sensor pipe that protects the internal sensing element, and a position magnet. Along with high shock and vibration ratings, the sensor has 200 V/m EMI protection. 

Designed for cylinders two inches in diameter (or larger), the sensor now provides a measuring range of 2 to 78 in. (50 to 2500 mm), doubling the available stroke length, while maintaining high levels of accuracy and repeatability. The sensor provides four position output options: 0 to 5 V, 0 to 20 mA, 4 to 20 mA, or PWM (16 re-circulations). It is available with a simultaneous velocity output for more precise closed-loop control capability.

The unit operates from -40 to 105°C, and can be purchased with either individual wire or cable connection options that are compatible with typical mobile equipment electrical connector requirements.
