Novotechnik U.S. (Southborough, MA) introduces the TM1 Series of magnetostrictive linear hydraulic and pneumatic position sensors with compact housing. A magnetic ring-shaped marker is affixed to your application’s moving cylinder and moves up and down the TM1 rod without contact. Specifically:
- TM1 Series stroke lengths are from 50 to 2,000 mm in 25 mm steps.
- Operating pressure is up to 5,076 psi (350 bar) with peaks to 6,526 psi (450 bar).
- Both plug-in and screw type flange models are available.
Other key specifications for TM1 include absolute linearity of ≤ 0.04% F.S. (min. 0.3 mm) and repeatability of ≤ ±0.1 mm. Output options include 4 to 20 mA current as well as voltage output of 0.25 to 4.75 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V or 0.1 to 10 V.
