GB Analog Magnetostrictive Linear Position Sensor

Brand: Temposonics an Amphenol Company
Does not ship to United States
GB Sensor: 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 non-contact over the sensor rod with the built-in waveguide. Temposonics GB is a rod-style sensor for installation into hydraulic cylinders, e.g. in power engineering.

With its flat and compact sensor housing and side-mounted signal connection, the sensor is ideal for small spaces.

Due to the pressure-resistant sensor rod and its high operating temperature the Temposonics® GB sensor is perfectly suitable for use in fluid technology.

For improved signal quality the sensor automatically adapts to the strength of the magnet used in the application. The set points, start and end position of the measurement, can be modified after installation of the Temposonics GB sensor.

Programming can be carried out using the standard connection cable. Optionally the sensor offers Bluetooth 1 connectivity for programming. In the case of Bluetooth® connectivity, set points can be modified even when the sensor is no longer accessible.

The maximum range between sensor and receiver is 5 meters (16 feet). With this option it is still possible to program the sensor via the cable connection.
