Temposonics Position Transducers – The Temposonics brand name was on the original magnetostrictive position sensor invented in 1970. This legacy, a wealth of practical industry experience, and an installed base of over one million units is behind every Temposonics sensor. Temposonics linear-position sensors use the time-based magnetostrictive position sensing principle. The position of the magnet is determined with high precision and speed by accurately measuring the elapsed time between the application of the interrogation pulse and the arrival of the resulting strain pulse with a high-speed counter. The elapsed time measurement is directly proportional to the position of the permanent magnet and is an absolute value. Therefore, the sensor’s output signal corresponds to absolute position, instead of incremental, and never requires recalibration or re-homing after a power loss. Absolute, non-contact sensing eliminates wear, and guarantees the best durability and output repeatability.

Temposonics G-Series sensors feature a microprocessor-based design with enhanced diagnostics and programmability offering the flexibility to fit a wide range of applications. The sensor’s head contains the active signal conditioning and a complete integrated electronics interface. Double shielding is used to ensure EMI protection for unsurpassed reliability and operating safety. G-Series model GH and GP sensors are extremely robust and are ideal for continuous operation under harsh industrial conditions. Backward compatibility with upgraded performance is one of the primary benefits of choosing a G-Series sensor. The G-Series sensor provides the same functionality as our legacy Temposonics I, II and L-Series sensor products which make it an ideal direct replacement. Temposonics offers two standard sensor housings, rod and profile extrusion. The rod housing is capable of withstanding high pressures such as those found in hydraulic cylinders. The profile extrusion housing provides convenient mounting options and captive sliding magnets which utilize slide bearings of special material that reduce friction, and help mitigate dirt build up.
