The New Sensor ET: Reliable in Applications with High Operating Temperatures

MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), a leading global supplier of high-performance test systems and position sensors, today announced the new robust and ATEX-certified Temposonics® ET sensor for use in areas with high operating temperatures up to 105 °C.


Plants dedicated to pressboards production or metal processing need instruments that provide maximum safety and reliability, even at very high operating temperatures.

The latest edition of E-Series Temposonics® sensor ET extends the maximum temperature range; thanks to the magnetostrictive technology, the sensor can determine exact positions even at operating temperatures up to 105 °C. The compact rod sensor can be integrated in a cylinder and is available with a rod length from 50 to 3000 mm. A 316L stainless steel variant is also available.

The Temposonics® sensor ET has ingress protection IP68 and is available with ATEX certification for hazardous areas. The start/stop interface of the sensor allows parameter upload: Therefore the sensor parameters can be transferred easily to the control.

"Our sensor is designed to work reliably and precisely in industries that produce parts at high ambient temperatures. In particular industries like iron and steel processing will benefit from our new, wear-free sensor,” said Robert Luong, MTS Sensors Industrial Technical Marketing Manager.
