MTS launches stainless steel Temposonics EH sensor

The Sensor division of MTS Systems Corp. introduced a 316L-grade stainless steel version of the company’s Temposonics EH linear positioning sensor for industrial applications. The stainless steel components make this new product ideal for applications involving fluid contact or exposure to sea air and moisture. 316L-grade stainless steel exhibits rust-resistance far superior to conventional steel and other materials, providing greater protection for both the electronic housing and the sensor rods.
“This product offers a significant advantage to manufacturers of equipment where continual exposure to liquid or moisture is an issue”, Matt Hankinson, technical marketing manager with MTS Sensors, explained. The new product was developed specifically for applications such as chemical processing, medical equipment, beverage and food handling, as well as shipbuilding, naval and oil production equipment. The 316L stainless steel EH rod version is extremely corrosion resistant and durable. It offers optimum protection to IP67 and IP69K and can be used at an operating temperature of -40°C to 75°C. Measuring lengths between 50mm and 2500mm are possible. The compact housing is equipped with an M12 connector and available with analogue, CANopen, SSI and Start-Stop output.
The product will be on display at the Hannover Trade Fair in Germany this April.
