The TP1 Series of magnetostrictive position sensors provide noncontact, absolute linear position.

The TP1 Series of magnetostrictive position sensors provide noncontact, absolute linear position. The sensors meet all specifications without time-consuming setpoint adjustments (null and span). The sensors are plug-in compatible with similar sensors and come in measurement ranges of 50 to 4,500 mm. Specifications include a 62-μsec update rate, absolute linearity to within ± 0.02 % of F.S, 16-bit resolution, and an operation temperature range of –40 to 85°C.

Output versions of the TP1 include analog, start/stop, SSI, quadrature, and high-flexibility 48-bit DyMoS, which provides true velocity.

Analog outputs include 0 to 10 V, 0 to 20 mA, 4 to 20 mA, and –10 to 10 V as both minimum to maximum and vice versa. The analog-output version features programmable start and end-stop points. Quadrature digital output features an initialization phase upon power-up that eliminates the need for a reference drive.
