Lüdenscheid, Germany - MTS Sensors updates its MH Series of magnetostrictive linear position sensors by introducing a threaded flange option. The MH5-Threaded device is a highly robust sensor optimized for mobile applications (such as crane outriggers), as well as fuel tank level measurement. The sensing device delivers high performance operation, with a ±0.1mm typical resolution, repeatability of ±0.1mm and a ±0.04% linearity (full scale). Stroke lengths of up to 2500mm are supported. The sensor rod is available in 7mm and 10mm diameters. The operational temperature range supported spans from -40°C to + 105°C.
The proprietary Temposonics magnetostrictive technology utilized by MH Series sensors means that these devices are not vulnerable to vibration, shock, dust and electro-magnetic interference. As a result they can be deployed in the most difficult of application settings - maintaining elevated levels of accuracy without risk of downtime or subsequent loss of productivity being witnessed.
