Rod & cylinder magnetostrictive sensor
DPN WEB EXCLUSIVE: MTS
Systems Corp. Sensors Division recently developed a "rod &
cylinder" style linear sensor for hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder and
machine positioning applications. Designated the Temposonics ER Sensor, this
design represents the newest addition to the E-Series family of accurate and
reliable position sensors.
The sensor features a design with a "sensing
rod" that can extend and retract fully into and out of the sensor housing.
The sensing magnet is completely contained and protected at all times, to
provide a durable sensor performance. The sensor has IP67 sealing for both the
sensor and rod. The sensor also features over-voltage protection to 36 Vdc and
reverse polarity protection to 30 Vdc on input voltage connections and the
integral DIN connector is CE certified for use in rugged environments. Other ER
sensor features and capabilities include an extended stroke length to 1500 mm,
and several mounting options, with mounting feet slots on three sides of the
