For position measurement, the absolute, linear Temposonics® position sensors make use of the properties offered by the specially designed magnetostrictive waveguide. Inside the sensor a torsional strain pulse is induced in the waveguide by momentary interaction of two magnetic fields. The interaction between these two magnetic fields produces a strain pulse, which is detected by the converter at the sensor electronics housing. One field is produced by a moving position magnet, which travels along the sensor rod with the waveguide inside. The other field is generated by a current pulse applied to the waveguide. The position of the moving magnet is determined precisely by measuring the time-of-flight between the application of the current pulse and the arrival of the strain pulse at the sensor electronics housing. The result is a reliable position measurement with high accuracy and repeatability.
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 Temposonics® E-Series EE position sensor is designed for the installation into a hydraulic cylinder. Because of his compact design the EE sensor is the perfect solution for small cylinders with limited space for the integration in a measuring system. The increased operating temperature capability allows the sensor to be used in a wide range of industrial applications.
