ER IO-Link Magnetostrictive Linear Position Sensor

Brand: Temposonics an Amphenol Company
Does not ship to United States
Robust, non-contact and wear free, the Temposonics linear position sensor provide high 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.

Temposonics® ER has the shape of an aluminum cylinder with a guided driving rod and contains both the sensor element and the electronics.

The position is detected via the solid extractable driving rod, which contains the position magnet and is mounted to the moveable machine part. The sensor can be installed in any orientation.

Typical fields of application are printing and paper industry, machine tools and plastics industry as well as control systems.

Temposonics® ER with IO-Link allows customers to adjust parameters including measuring direction, resolution or offset. In addition, a switching state can be outputted in parallel to the transfer of the position value.

The switching points as well as the switching logic can be parameterized. IO-Link is an open standard according to IEC 61131-9. It is a serial, bi-directional point-topoint connection for signal transmission and energy supply.

The bidirectional communication enables consistent communication between sensors and the controller as well as consistent diagnostic information down to the sensor level.
