Temposonics Linear Transducers
R Series - Rod & Profile Style Position Sensors - SSI 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.

A widely accepted controller inteface, Serial Synchronous Interface (SSI) is one of the output options on the Temposonics R Series of Sensors. Position data from the sensors is encoded in a 24 to 25 bit binary or Gray Code format and transmitted at very high speed via a synchronous interface. SSI output provides effective synchronization in a closed-loop control system. A clock pulse train from a controller is used to gate out sensor data: one bit at a time.

Temposonics R sensors offer modular construction and non-contacting magnetostrictive technology. Two application housings are available: rod-style (Model RH) 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
