MTS has extended its product portfolio of magnetostrictive position sensors for mobile hydraulics with the Temposonics Model MB stainless steel sensor. The unit has been developed specially for external attachment to a hydraulic cylinder, and can be used in applications such as steer-by-wire.

Compact dimension and M14 x 1.5 thread enables mounting on double-acting steering cylinders

Magnet integrated into piston transmits position through non-ferrous cylinder wall 

Using two externally mounted sensors, can function in redundant capacity to meet stringent safety requirements

Suitable for direct thread-in installation in differential cylinders

Offers flexibility to either thread into cylinder or attach on outside

Available with 12 V supply for measuring range of 72 mm to 250 mm 

Design enables large-scale integration in mobile hydraulics 

Non-contact position measurement provides long service life

Utilizes direct, analog voltage output to provide high-accuracy position feedback with linearity and hysteresis of < ± 0.25 mm and resolution of 0.25 mm

High-survivability rating with 100 g single shock rating

Vibration profile meets ISO 16750-3 specification

Protection type IP 69K ensures electrical connection is dust and watertight
