The Temposonics D Series sensor from MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Div.
, Cary, NC, is a low-cost magnetostrictive displacement sensor with a measuring range of 50–1500 mm and a direct 0–10 V output. Suited for use in plastics, packaging, and materials handling machinery that currently use linear potentiometers, limit switches, or similar technology for motion control, the sensors offer linearity of better than 0.01%, repeatability of 0.005%, and position update rate of 1.5 kHz. Each sensor is equipped with a waveguide sensing element, conditioning electronics, and an IP67-rated housing that accommodates the electronic interface and signal conditioning.
