EP2 Start/Stop 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. The compact and smooth aluminum profile offers flexible mounting options and easy installation.

Moreover, the position magnet can travel along the entire flat housing profile. The EP2 has an attractive price- / performance ratio and is ideal for industrial applications including plastics molding and processing, factory automation and packaging.
Features
  • Optimal price-performance ratio
  • Position measurement with more than one magnet
  • Smooth & compact
