MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division, today introduced the Temposonics® MH-Agri magnetostrictive linear position sensor for in-cylinder measurement. The MH-Agri (identified by the green lid) was developed for large agricultural vehicle projects where specific product specifications are required. While offering the benefits needed in this specific market, it offers the same technology available in Temposonics Model MH sensors.
The primary features of the MH-Agri are:
- 12VDC power supply
- 0.25 VDC to 4.75 VDC output
- 10 mm pressure resistant sensor rod
- 300 bar operating pressure, 400 bar pressure spikes
- 50 to 1000 mm stroke range
- 50g shock, 15g vibration rating
- EMC tested to ISO 14982
- MTS proprietary M12 connector system for IP 69k when installed in cylinder
The MH-Agri provides customers with a cost-effective solution for their position sensing requirements. MTS Sensors accomplish this by optimizing the electronics, offering specific features and meeting the strict requirements of the agricultural machine market.
Using new production processes and automation allows us to manufacture this sensor in large quantities at optimized costs. Manufacturers of agricultural equipment will now be able to replace rotary, potentiometric, angle sensors and proximity sensors with highly reliable absolute, non-contact magnetostrictive technology – embedded within the cylinder for even longer life. This significantly reduces warranty and service costs, as well as improves the overall reliability of the machine.
