Optimised for hydraulic cylinder implementation in linear drives, control valves and fluid cylinders, the rugged Model GT2 and Model GT3 respectively have 2 and 3 independent measuring systems contained within a single compact housing.
Also targeted are hazardous area deployments, such as in steel mills, power generation sites and wood processing plants, the RT4 sensor also features built-in redundancy. In addition, its detached electronics mean that the sensitive semiconductor components can be kept away from the most extreme conditions.
Aimed at incorporation into gas/steam turbines, the Model GBS comes with a standard analogue output or an SSI option for enhanced signal integrity. This device can be programmed via its USB port or wirelessly through Bluetooth technology.
Temposonics sensors present a non-contact method for accurate position measurement which is not subject to mechanical wear and tear. They are said to exhibit resilience to high pressures, elevated temperatures, shocks, vibrations and electromagnetic interference. Stroke lengths of as much as 20m are supported. As they deliver an absolute position rather than relative value, the inconvenience of sensor recalibration can be avoided.
The MTS portfolio of magnetostrictive sensors is backed up by a variety of design configurations, integrated diagnostic functions, interface types and housings.
