Temposonics Linear Transducers
ER Series Rod & Cylinder-Style Economy Position Sensors
MTS Temposonics ER Rod & Cylinder-Style 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 internal magnet as the rod moves, to measure position with a high degree of resolution and accuracy. The Temposonics ER 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 ER 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.
