Versatile linear position sensor features
rugged 1P67 environmental sealing...
MTS developed a unique "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.
MTS Temposonics® remains the only sensor manufacturer in the market
to offer this rod and cylinder style of magnetostrictive sensors. The ER
sensor provides the performance Temposonics users have come to
expect in a small, robust package and a price that is ideal for machine
control and factory automation designers.
"We designed the ER sensor to answer the market's need for
competitively priced linear potentiometer technology in applications
where non-contact feedback is essential," explained Technical Marketing
Manager, Hanserdmann von Biedersee. "The benefits of magnetostrictive
feedback have long outweighed potentiometers, but overall cost has been
an obstacle. By utilizing next generation E-Series electronics, the ER
sensor is an ideal fit for position feedback applications." The ER sensor
features a unique rod & cylinder 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 ER sensor performs well under harsh conditions due to
the lP67 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 new 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 sensor, to offer a simple, yet versatile
installation .process. The entire sensor can be mounted to the machine
using standard mounting feet and screws that can be easily adjusted.
