ER Analog Magnetostrictive Linear Position Sensor

Brand: Temposonics an Amphenol Company
Does not ship to Virginia, United States
Robust, non-contact and wear free, the Temposonics linear position sensors provide the best durability and precise position measurement feedback in harsh industrial environments.

Measurement accuracy is tightly controlled by the quality of the waveguide manufactured exclusively by MTS Sensors.

The Temposonics ER has an aluminum rod-and-cylinder design where the rod can extend and retract from the sensor housing to measure linear position.

Inside, a magnet is secured to the end of the rod and remains protected within the sensor electronics housing. Accessory rod ends are available for attaching the rod to the machine’s moving part.

The rod-and-cylinder sensor design can be installed in any orientation, and provides a convenient and versatile position feedback solution. Typical fields of applications are printing and paper industry, machine tools and plastics industry as well as control systems.
Features
  • Compact sensor model
  • Operating temperature up to +75 °C (+167 °F)
  • Ideal for flexible mounting
