EP/EL Analog 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 sensors provide the best 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.

The compact Temposonics EP as well as the ultra low Temposonics EL are profile sensors suitable for standard applications and in particularly for applications with limited installation space.

The evaluation electronics is accommodated in an aluminum sensor housing. Typical fields of applications are plastics industry, metal forming and woodworking as well as factory automation.
