MTS Sensor Technologie has redesigned the Temposonics E-series of linear position sensors for applications in plastics processing, woodworking, or the handling industries.

The Temposonics E-series family is said to allow for cost-effective and efficient use of magnetostrictive transducers in standard applications with typical requirements.

As an economic alternative to wear-prone displacement measuring systems, the sensors offer non-contact sensing and reliable position feedback in a small package.

The E-series position sensors provide 0.01mm resolution and repeatability as well as 0.03 per cent FS linearity deviation for defined stroke lengths from 50mm up to 2,500mm.

They feature analogue or start/stop outputs.

The analogue models are capable of reporting two positions simultaneously when using two position magnets.

The secure connection of the sensors occurs via M12 plugs, which allow for the use of reasonably priced over-moulded cables.

With their rugged construction, the sensors achieve a minimum of IP67 ratings as well as 100 g shock and 10 g vibration resistance across the product family.

The hermetically sealed stainless-steel housing of the EH even offers protection up to IP69K when used with the appropriate connector.

According to the application, four sensor designs can fulfil every requirement, MTS Sensor Technologies said.

The stainless-steel model EH provides a compact, rugged rod-style package with either a 7mm or 10mm tube.

The profile version EP sensor can operate so that the magnet floats over the sensor’s electronic head.

The rod-and-cylinder housed ER sensor has improved sealing and can be installed in any orientation at lengths up to 1,500mm.

For space-critical applications, MTS has developed a new sensor model.

The low-profile version EL sensor, which has a height of 15mm along the measuring range – fits into tight spaces.

All models provide backward compatibility with the previous versions of the E-series.
