MTS Offers IP67 Housing for C-Series Linear Position Sensor
CARY, N.C (May 5, 2005) ¡X MTS Sensors introduces new IP67 housing options for the C-Series modular linear-position sensor. The IP67 housing is ideal for applications subjected to dust, moisture and other environmental conditions that can interfere with operation. Particularly well suited for small- to mid-volume applications where an embedded design using the C-Series core sensor may not be feasible, the C-Series housing options allow the sensor to be safely and securely installed externally onto a product with limited design modifications for even the most robust applications.

The Temposonics C-Series sensor incorporates the latest in magnetostrictive sensor technology to produce the world¡¦s smallest magnetostrictive position sensor. Designed for use in OEM products, such as medical devices, small cutting/fastening/forming tools, and various consumer products, the C-Series sensor electronics fit completely inside a 36 mm (1.4 in) by 23 mm (0.91 in) cylindrical housing package, such as the new IP67 housing option from MTS.

¡§The compact size and new housing options provide a greater range of installation choices, making the C-Series an ideal choice to replace older technology sensors, such as linear potentiometers and LVDTs,¡¨ said Jesse Russell, Product Marketing Manager, MTS Sensors Division. ¡§While many high-volume OEMs will design the C-Series into their application housings, the availability of housing options, such as the new IP67 option, makes the C-Series a more viable option for many small- to mid-volume applications for which redesign for embedded installations may otherwise be too costly.¡¨

The C-Series Core sensor has a 0 to 5Vdc or PWM output available, and can be powered with a standard 5-volt power supply. The modular architecture allows the addition of a second electronics board that configures the sensor to operate using 12-volt power and also adds additional protection circuitry for EMI immunity. The optional board was designed to optimize the C-Series sensor performance in many mobile machine applications, including agricultural, marine and construction equipment as well as other applications with 12-volt supplies.
