Temposonic Transducer Range Extended By RDP

The MTS Temposonic range of magnetostrictive transducers from RDP Electronics now extends to versions for double or triple redundancy. The Temposonic series of transducers accurately measure the position of the ring magnet along the metal tube. They are frequently used inside hydraulic cylinders to measure the position of the cylinder.

The GT2 and GT3 series retain the same dimensions as the standard G series magnetostrictive MTS transducers making installation in hydraulic cylinders equally straightforward, or indeed for use in general measurement of displacement in automation and control applications. At the heart of the magnetostrictive contactless technology is the wave guide, which is duplicated in the GT2 version to provide two independent measuring systems within a single housing.

The GT3 takes this a stage further with three systems within the same 10mm-diameter rod, which is pressure rated to 350 bar (700 bar peak). Both the GT2 and GT3 series are available with analogue outputs that include standard 0-10V, +/- 10V, and 4-20mA and 0-20mA ranges.
