Temposonics Linear Transducers
Temposonics G Series - Next Generation Position Sensors
For Upgrading from Obsolete Tempo II and L-Series Sensors
MTS Sensors, the inventors of magnetostrictive position sensing and makers of Temposonics sensors, is proud to introduce the new G-Series Linear Position Sensors utilizing their "next generation" technology platform. The new G-Series position sensors feature a microprocessor-based design with enhanced diagnostics and programmability. They are available in both Hydraulic Rod Style and Profile Style housing configurations.

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.

Advanced Communication and Programmability
By using external communication for monitoring and programming of the G-Series position sensor, there is no need to open the electronics housing. This simplifies installation and commissioning, saving valuable time. Keeping the sensor electronics isolated ensures that seal integrity and the highest product reliability are maintained.

The new platform technology inside the G-Series enables:
  • Infrared (IR) send and receive for wireless communication
  • Built-in serial interfaces for robust hard-wired serial communication (RS-422 for digital-pulse outputs and RS-485 for analog outputs)
  • Remote programmability for operational modes and sensor parameters
  • Enhanced monitoring and diagnostic capabilities

In addition to providing advanced programming and diagnostic capabilities in a rugged package, the G-Series position sensors also include the following features:

  • Electronics housing small enough to allow for drop in replacements of legacy Temposonics products
  • Standard 24Vdc and extended input power supply options for compatibility with older controller interfaces
  • Fully adjustable voltage and current outputs within:
    • -10 to +10 Vdc or +10 to -10 Vdc
    • 0 to 20 mA or 20 to 0 mA
  • Digital-pulse outputs: Start/Stop and PWM
  • All outputs available up to 300 in. stroke length (hydraulic-rod style)
  • Up to 15 magnet positions simultaneously using the Start/Stop output option
  • Integral connector replacement options including: hanging (inline) connectors, adapter cables, and field-installed connector kits.


SPECIFICATION SHEET

Enhanced Monitoring and Diagnostics
The G-Series simple visual user interface helps resolve the majority of customer installation and troubleshooting issues. Integrated LEDs (see image below) indicate:
  • Normal operating conditions
  • Error conditions, power and sensor/control interface issues
  • Programming modes (IR or hard wired)

Hard-wire G-Series serial communication enables diagnostic feedback at a convenient remote location. Access to internal sensor conditions minimizes troubleshooting efforts and enables the development of more sophisticated controller diagnostic routines. All of these features will simplify sensor installation and maximize operational productivity.
