Temposonics Linear Transducers
EP & EL Series Profile-Style Economy Position Sensors
Model EP position sensor - Full Size Profile Housing
Stroke Length: 50 mm to 3000 mm (2 in. to 120 in.)

Model EL position sensor - Low Height Profile Housing
Stroke Length: 50 mm to 2500 mm (2 in. to 100 in.)

MTS Temposonics EP Profile-Style and EL Low-Profile Economy Linear Transducers 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 rehoming of the device.

Using the unique magnetostrictive principle, that MTS pioneered, the sensor precisely senses the position of an external magnet through the housing wall, to measure position with a high degree of resolution and accuracy. The Temposonics EP/EL sensor’s innovative design is a result of MTS’s experience in magnetostrictive technology combined with solid engineering, extremely rugged construction and modern electronics. The Temposonics EP/EL is a precise, durable and cost effective alternative to linear potentiometers. They offer all the advantages of a non-contact position sensor suitable for a wide range of machines and automation applications.

Features

  • Ideal Replacement for Linear Pots
