Temposonics Linear Transducers
R Series - Rod & Profile Style Position Sensors - Analog Output
MTS Temposonics R-Series Model RP Profile Style Sensor (top) and Model RH Hyrdraulic Rod Style Sensor (bottom). MTS Temposonics R-Series Model RF Flex Style Sensor.
The Temposonics R Series Linear Transducers are your solution when you need smart sensor capability for faster, higher precision, more reliable data processing and communication. By preprocessing sensor data in the sensor, your machine controller can reduce processing overhead and carry out other functions. Though the Temposonics R Series is at least four times faster than the other proven lines of Temposonics sensors, it’s also more precise: Resolution of 2 microns (0.00008 inch) at 10,000 measurements per second is standard; exceptional non-linearity of 0.02% uncorrected; and hysteresis of 0.00015 inches, which is the best in the industry.

Dual simultaneous analog outputs are offered as standard (i.e. one displacement & one velocity output using one magnet; or two identical displacement outputs using two magnets). R series sensors provide direct analog outputs, both voltage & current that allow 100% adjustment of zero and span setpoints. Since the outputs are direct, no signal conditioning electronics are needed when interfacing with controllers or meters.

Three application housings are available: rod-style (Model RH), flex-style (Model RF) and profile-style (Model RP). With RH sensors, the sensor cartridge can be quickly replaced in the field without removing the application housing. The changeover is done in one minute with no draining or de-pressurizing of the hydraulic cylinder. For linear measurement along an arc, the Temposonics RF is flexible to an 8 inch minimum bend radius arc and comes in stroke lengths up to 10 meters
