ET 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 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.
