Temposonics Linear Transducers
EH Series Hydraulic Rod Style Economy Position Sensors
Model EH position sensor - Hydraulic Rod Style
Stroke Length: 50 mm to 2500 mm (2 in. to 100 in.)

MTS Sensors continues to establish new performance standards for low-cost, fully-industrial, durable position sensors using the widely preferred magnetostrictive technology. This principle for accurate and non-contact measurement of linear-position sensing was developed 30 years ago by MTS and is used with outstanding success in a large variety of industrial applications.

The Temposonics model EH sensor provides as much performance as you need for your application - you benefit from the advantages of magnetostrictive position measurement at optimum costs.

The Temposonics® Model EH sensor features a pressure resistant sensor rod for direct stroke measurement inside hydraulic cylinders. With its minimized sensor head and either a 7 mm or 10 mm rod, it is the ideal solution when space is critical. For long strokes, the model EH is available with measuring ranges up to 2500 mm (or 100 in.).

The model EH sensor offers completely sealed stainless-steel housing for long life position measurement for rugged environments. When installed with the appropriate mating connector and cable, it features protection up to IP69K and is suitable for high-pressure washdown applications.
