Continuous position feedback sensor offered in rod-style package

MTS Systems’ Temposonic EH features a compact, rod-style package where non-contact continuous feedback is needed.


MTS SMTS Systems EH Seriesystems Corp. Sensors Division’s newest addition to the Temposonic E-Series product line, the E-Series Model EH, was reportedly designed with an efficient, compact, rod-style package and has a lower manufacturing cost than high-end products for cost-sensitive applications where non-contact, continuous feedback is beneficial.

“Historically, magnetostrictive sensors have been more heavily adopted in advanced applications where high performance position feedback is required,” Matt Hankinson, Technical Marketing Manager, MTS Sensors, explained. “This product gives equipment manufacturers with cost-sensitive applications access to the technology. Leveraging decades of product development, our strong market leadership position and new manufacturing techniques, we have developed a magnetostrictive sensor that offers all of the technology advantages at a price point optimized for standard feedback applications.”

The Temposonics E-Series Model EH features a stainless steel design with a compact, rugged, rod-style package with either a 7 or 10 mm rod. The housing, when used with a proper connector, is ideal for applications where high temperature resistance and high pressure washdowns are required and meets IP 69K standards.

Other features include widely available M12 connector cables, 0.005 mm resolution and repeatability, as well as 0.02% linearity deviation for defined stroke lengths between 50 mm and 2500 mm, analog (voltage or current) Start/Stop output.

Other products in the E-Series include the Model EL, a low profile version for space-critical applications, the Model ER, which features improved rod-and-cylinder housing with improved sealing and the Model EP, a profile version that now allows the magnet to travel over the sensor’s head.
