The intrinsically safe Temposonics IS position sensors by MTS are designed to ensure a safe working environment where ignitable mixtures of materials occur.

Developed for the linear position or level measurement in hazardous areas, they meet all the requirements of equipment group category II.

Along with the corresponding certified safety barriers, they can be used directly in hazardous areas of instrument category 1/2G and 2D and can be mounted to zone 0.

The IS sensors come with the dimensions of the product range’s standard transducers, making the advantages of absolute, non-contact position measurement available without any additional housing for an environment with high explosion risk.

Voltage and current supply is limited so that no ignitable energy arises and potential spark formation cannot trigger any explosion.

The surface temperature of the sensors will not rise above 135C.

The sensors offer a direct analogue current or voltage interface and feature a signal output inside the sensor head.

At measuring ranges of 50-2500mm they work with an infinite resolution, a repeatability better than +/-0.05mm and a 1ms cycle time.

Customer-specific programming of set points is possible.

The IS sensors are available as profile version for external mounting to the motion axis, as rod model for in-cylinder installation or together with a float as a level sensor.
