Cary, NC (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division, has introduced the Temposonics® R-Series with Profinet IO Real Time (RT) interface. These highly accurate sensors are part of the company’s second product line, along with EtherNet/IP, for use with Ethernet interfaces in heavy manufacturing and other industrial applications. Currently, the sensors are available with either a 4.1 PNO (PROFIBUS User Organization) standardized profile or an MTS communication profile for multi-position measurement.
“The new Profinet compatible products are designed to offer manufacturers greater performance and design flexibility across many different industrial applications,” said Matt Hankinson, technical marketing manager with MTS Sensors. “Working with our customers, we understand the value of Industrial Ethernet and are committed to developing high quality linear positioning sensors that incorporate this functionality. By expanding our product offering, we will help plant operators and equipment manufacturers meet more rigorous design challenges while maintaining the performance of the equipment.”
The R-Series with Profinet RT Interface offers several advantages when compared to other technologies currently available, including:
- Multiple position measurement using 19 unique magnets
- Double shielded housing to allow use in electrically noisy environments
- Easy replacement and maintenance options using a cartridge based model
- High tolerance to shock and vibration for harsh environments
MTS Sensors is currently marketing these products across all industrial segments and applications in which Industrial Ethernet can improve productivity and quality, including steel mills, hydraulic presses, electric welding, pulp and paper and industrial robotics.
“Incorporating the Industrial Ethernet into industrial equipment is becoming more prevalent as manufacturers look for ways to streamline their factory architecture,” Hankinson said. “MTS Sensors has been at the forefront of research and product development when it comes to offering high performance linear positioning solutions for those applications.”
