Portable verification of sensor functionality.

A new test kit is now available from MTS for quick functional testing of the off-highway M-Series Temposonics® position sensors. Now the cylinder manufacturer can ensure quality by performing a functional check on the completed cylinder-sensor-assembly after integration of the sensor into the hydraulic cylinder and prior to delivery to the customer. Testing may also be performed by the OEM on the completed off-highway machine.

This portable, battery-powered test kit has been developed for Temposonics® sensors with analogue or PWM outputs. While performing a functional check the test kit powers the sensor and completely isolates it from the machine eliminating other potential areas of fault that can lead to a perfectly functioning sensor being declared defective by mistake. For example, if the trouble is due to faulty cabling, or if it is in the control system, the sensor can be excluded from trouble shooting immediately. Evidences of proper sensor operation will save time and cost during the trouble shooting process.

The convenient to handle test kit is delivered ready for connection and can be used easily at the manufacturer's site. It includes a simple to read display that reports the position value. A charger, connecting cables and a carrying bag are included with the equipment supplied.
