Now available: 316L stainless steel version of Temposonics® EH Sensor

MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ:MTSC), a leading global supplier of test systems and position sensors, announced that the Sensor Division MTS Sensor has launched a high-quality 316L stainless steel version of the magnetostrictive Temposonics® EH position sensor.

Now available: EH with 316L stainless steel

The excellent properties of this stainless steel quality will be beneficial mainly for industrial branches where liquids are used. Conventional steel components exposed to permanent moisture or sea air are at risk of rusting. Stainless steel 316L as used by MTS Sensor for electronics housing and sensor rods offers much better protection against rust than conventional steel components.

For the chemical, medical equipment, beverage and food industries as well as for shipbuilding, naval and oil production applications, in particular, the new MTS product is a highly exciting alternative. The 316L stainless steel EH rod version is extremely resistant and durable, offers optimum protection to IP67 and IP69K and can be used at an operating temperature of -40 °C to +75 °C. Measuring lengths between 25 and 2500 mm are possible. The compact housing is equipped with an M12 connector and available with analog, CANopen, SSI and start-stop output.

“Industries where our MTS sensors are exposed continuously to liquid or moisture will quickly appreciate the advantages of the 316L stainless steel version of Temposonics® EH position sensors. Durability due to protection against rust is a convincing argument”, says Olaf Kissing, product manager at MTS Sensor Technologie.
