Sensors Gain Super Shield Housing

July 6, 2010
The vendor has improved the design of its Temposonics linear-position sensors for longevity in harsh environments by adding a super shield housing option to ensure long-term wear. 
Ordered as an integrated package with R-Series and G-Series sensors, the SSH housing is hermetically sealed and made of stainless steel, meeting the requirements of protection modes IP 68 and IP 69K. The new housing provides protection against corrosion and penetration of dirt and water, regardless of difficult environmental conditions, says the vendor, making it well-suited for outdoor use as well as applications requiring high-pressure wash-down cleaning. The robust, rod-style sensors were developed for measuring lengths of 25mm to 7600mm. The Temposonics modular sensor cartridge design enables the customer to choose the specific sensor output configurations to be installed within the super shield housing to best fit application requirements.MTS Systems Corp.www.mtssensors.com919.677.0100
