EH 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 EH is a compact rod-style sensor and the ideal solution for direct stroke measurement in small hydraulic cylinders.

The position magnet mounted on the piston head of the hydraulic cylinder travels over the sensor rod with the built-in waveguide to provide a precise, non-contact position measurement.

The EH is ideal for a variety of applications including: fluid power, food industry, plastic industry, glass and ceramics, energy sector, machine tools and testing machines.

Temposonics EH 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-to-point connection for signal transmission and energy supply.

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