Improved Magnetostrictive Sensors

Sept. 16, 2004
New G-Series magnetostrictive position sensors are backward compatible with existing L-Series and Tempo II Series sensors.

Enhancements include programming and diagnostic features, more shock and vibration resistance, reduced EMI interference and improved immunity to harsh environmental conditions. The sensors provide a form-fit function replacement for current legacy sensors and are compatible with RMC Series motion controllers. The G-Series operates on standard 24-Vdc or optional 9 to 23-Vdc power supplies and offers an electronics housing installation envelope that fits into the Tempo II sensor. Voltage and current outputs are fully adjustable within ±10 Vdc and 0 to 20 mA (forward and reverse acting). All outputs are available standard for stroke lengths up to 300 in. External programmability eliminates the need to access internal sensor electronics. LED and remote diagnostics provide sensor readings for settings, faults, and output data and assist in troubleshooting and maintenance.
