linear position sensors provide accurate, non-contact position
sensing in a wide array of output configurations and application
MTS Sensors (a Division of MTS
Systems) delivers leading-edge position sensors,
and is the world’s leading supplier of magnetostrictive-based sensor
products. The Sensors Division was created by MTS Systems when it
acquired Temposonics, Inc. in 1984. Temposonics remains the key
technology brand for MTS Sensors and reflects an ongoing commitment
to high-precision measurement technology
Temposonics sensors are
preconfigured at the factory by model
code designation. For many applications no adjustments are required
normal sensor installation and operation. If, however, sensor
parameter changes are desired while in the field, both the G-Series
& R-Series sensors are easily programmed. Please see the following
page for more information on programming options...
The R-Series smart sensors feature high
resolution digitally based linear feedback ideal for today’s
advanced distributed control architectures.
The sensors fulfill all requirements of the SSI standard for
absolute encoders. Its displacement value is encoded in a 24/25/26
code format and transmitted at high speed in SSI standard format to
the control device. Main feature of SSI is the synchronized data

R-SERIES ANALOG SENSORS
Smart analog sensors provide direct analog outputs
including voltage and current. All outputs allow 100 % adjustments
of zero and span set points. Since the outputs are direct, no signal
conditioning electronics are needed when interfacing with controllers

G-SERIES DIGITAL & ANALOG SENSORS
position sensors feature a microprocessor-based design with enhanced
diagnostics and programmability to maximize backwards compatibility.
Backwards compatibility is one of the primary benefits of the new
G-Series position sensor. G-Series position sensors provide the same
functionality as Tempo II and L-Series sensors making them an ideal
direct replacement for these products.
G-Series position sensors provide direct Start/Stop and PWM
signals. Standard resolution is 0.004 in. with digital pulse outputs
using a 28 MHz counter). Higher resolutions are possible with
circulations or with the use of higher resolution counters.
G-Series position sensors with analog outputs provide direct
signals, including voltage (0 to 10 Vdc or -10 to +10 Vdc, forward
or reverse acting) and current (4 to 20 mA, or 0 to 20 mA, forward
or reverse acting). Both voltage and current outputs allow full
adjustments of null and span set points, (minimum 1 inch between
set points). Since the outputs are direct, no signal-conditioning
electronics are needed when interfacing with controllers or meters.
offer basic economical feedback to industries requiring no-frills
low cost sensing.
They are highly repeatable, absolute position sensors for linear
measurement. Absolute measurement offers safety for machine and
automation devices. With absolute output, position information is
instantly available; power-down
situations do not require re-homing
of the device.

T2 & LH SERIES SENSORS (Obsolete)
Both the Tempo II and
LH Series of sensors have been replaced by the
This enhanced line offers new
features that will directly benefit existing customers in the wood,
metals, plastics & rubber production industries.
The G-Series is fully
backward compatible with all legacy products and can be directly
interchanged with any T2 or LH Sensor.
The G-Series sensors
are available with either an integral cable or a D6 connector.
Adapters cables are available to provide a seamless transition from
the D6 connector to your existing RB connector cables. Alternatively
we also offer a complete line of heavy duty molded cables for all of
the above sensors.

RF FLEX PROBES / MULTI MAGNET
MTS Temposonics adds flexible sensors to its
family of Temposonics magnetostrictive linear position sensors.
Based on the principle of magnetostrictive sensing that MTS
pioneered, the flexible sensor provides proven non-contact
and trouble-free Temposonics performance for very long stroke
lengths and linear measurements on an arc.
The new flexible sensors
are available with all R Series outputs including analog outputs,
digital pulse outputs, and bus outputs including Profibus and CANbus.
Standard stroke lengths for the flexible sensor are up to 9 meters
(360 inches) and can support up to 15 magnets. Special applications
are available. Please call...
