MTS Sensors introduces the GBS high resolution magnetostrictive position sensors featuring a synchronous serial interface (SSI).

  • Based on the company’s proprietary Temposonics technology which provides an extremely accurate, non-contact method for measuring position
  • Delivers industry-leading levels of linearity (up to ±0.02% full scale) and repeatability (up to ±0.005% full scale)
  • Rod shaped and highly optimized for incorporation into hydraulic cylinders
  • Available with measuring lengths between 25 mm and 3.25 m
  • Flat, compact housing for supporting electronics makes for easy deployment in restricted spaces
  • Features IP67-rated ingress protection with an adapted connector or IP68-rated protection for models with cable outlets
  • Includes high pressure resistance and strong immunity to electro-magnetic interference
  • Operating temperature range is -40 to 90 C (194 F)
  • Extended temperature range version reaches ranges of -40 to 100 C (212 F)
  • Allows users to select between SSI and analog output options as appropriate
  • SSI functionality dramatically enhances reliability and signal integrity in harsh industrial environments, enabling 5 µm measurement resolution to be attained
  • Programmable using a hand-programmer unit orcomputer via USB port
  • Can be programmed wirelessly via Bluetooth to expedite implementation process and make maintenance easy to undertake, especially when sensors are located in hard to reach places
  • Programming software enables user to set and adjust a wide variety of different parameters, such as synchronous/asynchronous measurement modes, measuring direction, coding and data length
