L-Series LD Analog/Digital Linear Position Sensor

Brand: Temposonics an Amphenol Company
Does not ship to United States
The absolute Temposonics linear position sensors are based on the MTS developed magnetostrictive measurement principle.

That combines various magneto-mechanical effects and uses the physical height precise speed measurement of an ultrasonic wave (torsion pulse in its sensor element) for position detecting.

The integral signal processing transforms the measurements into Analog or digital standardized outputs.

The contactless principle - an external movable magnet marks the position - eliminates the wear, noise and erroneous signal problems and guarantees the best durability without any recalibration.
Features
  • Absolute sensor
  • Non-contact measurement
  • Modular construction
  • Stable design
  • Highest durability
  • Direct Analog output (V/mA): 100% field adjustable
  • Digital pulse output, start-stop
