R-Series DeviceNet Magnetostrictive 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.

Sensor integrated signal processing transforms the measurements directly into market standard 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.

The extremely robust sensor, ideal for continuous operation under harshest industrial conditions is completely modular in mechanic and electronic design.
Features
  • A profile or rod-shaped sensor housing protects the sensing element in which gives rise to the measurement signal
  • The sensor head accommodates the complete modular electronic interface with active signal conditioning Double encapsulation ensures high operating safety and optimum EMC protection
  • The position transmitter, a permanent magnet - fixed at the mobile machine part - drives contact-lessly over the sensor's stroke and starts measuring through the housing wall
