April 29, 2010 - MTS Systems announced a super shield housing option to ensure long-term wear. Ordered as an integrated package with R-Series and G-Series sensors, the SSH housing is hermetically sealed and made of stainless steel, meeting the requirements of protection modes IP 68 and IP 69K. The housing provides protection against corrosion and penetration of dirt and water, regardless of difficult environmental conditions, making it ideal for outdoor use as well as applications requiring high-pressure wash-down cleaning.The Temposonics modular sensor cartridge design enables the customer to choose the specific sensor output configurations to be installed within the super shield housing to best fit application requirements. A wide choice of interfaces (Analog, Profibus, SSI, CANbus, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, POWERLINK) is available. Additionally, integration of ATEX-certified and intrinsically safe sensors is possible with the protective housing.MTS' R-Series sensors are rugged, industrial sensors that provide absolute, linear-position measurement with high-performance output protocols. With linearity deviation down to ± 0.01% full stroke (± 20 micrometers with the linearity correction option), resolution of 1 micrometer, and repeatability of min. ± 2.5 micrometer these sensors are ideal for applications that require accuracy, reliability, and consistency.G-Series sensors are rugged, industrial sensors that provide highly accurate measurements in either analog or digital outputs, offer enhanced diagnostics and programming capabilities, and are designed for backwards compatibility with legacy Temposonics products.
