GT2/GT3 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 best durability and accurate position measurement solutions in harsh industrial environments. 

The position measurement accuracy is tightly controlled by the quality of the waveguide which is manufactured by MTS Sensors. 

The position magnet is mounted on the moving machine part and travels contact-lessly over the sensor rod with the built-in waveguide. Temposonics GT is a sensor with double or triple redundancy. 

Two or three independent measuring systems are integrated in one sensor housing. In particular the sensor is suitable for enhanced safety applications. 

The waveguide is installed in a pressure-resistant high-grade steel rod. The Temposonics GT sensor is suitable for linear position measurement in fluid cylinders on ships and floodgates.
