MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division, showcased the company’s E-Series Temposonics® Sensors at the International Plastics Showcase (NPE), April 2-5. E-Series sensors are designed to offer the reliability, durability and ease of use of magnetostrictive sensors to those customers who don’t necessarily need advanced performance levels.

“With the E-Series, we designed a family of products that meets the performance demands of standard applications without premium features needed in high performance applications,” Matt Hankinson, technical marketing manager with MTS Sensors, explained, “This allows manufacturers of blow molding and injection molding machines to better meet the needs of a wider range of customers.”

The E-Series includes the following products:

  •     Model ER rod-and-cylinder sensors with analog and digital pulse (Start/Stop) outputs
  •     Model EP profile-style sensors with analog, digital pulse and Start/Stop outputs
  •     Model EH rod sensor with a pressure proof sensor rod for direct stroke measurement in hydraulic cylinders
  •     Model EL sensors featuring a low profile aluminum housing

The E-Series sensors offer a range of benefits including protection classes up to IP69K, compact dimensions, a cost effective M12 connector, the measurement of two positions with one sensor and more. Measuring ranges from 50 mm up to 2540 mm (2 to 100 inches).

“Not every operation requires the high resolution and specific performance benefits found in our top of the line sensors,” Hankinson said. “However, they still need a reliable product that offers the best possible benefits for their price range.”

Visitors are invited to visit MTS Sensors at booth number 4775 any day of the event to learn more.
