Simple, flexible and reliable position measurement up to 15 meters.

The MTS Temposonics Model RF magnetostrictive position sensor, available from RDP Electronics Ltd, offers the perfect solution for accurate, absolute position measurement combined with flexibility. Extremely robust it is designed for continuous operation even when subject to the harshest industrial environments.

A significant feature of the flexible design is the ability to ship the sensor ‘rolled up’ vastly increasing the ease and reducing the cost of carriage and storage of the unit.

The Model RF device allows positioning of up to 15 magnets along the length of the sensor significantly reducing installation and maintenance costs associated with an encoder, micro switch or proximity switch solution. The sensing element is contained in a Teflon coated stainless steel flexible housing that can be bent in an arc to a minimum 250 mm radius, so that it does not have to fixed in a straight line to moving machine parts, and is offered with a measuring range from 150 mm to 15000 mm. Output options include Analogue, SSI, CANBus, Profibus-DP and EtherCAT.

MTS Temposonics are the original developers of the magnetostrictive technology and recognised world leaders for quality and service for this very rugged sensor.
