New Temposonics MH-Series MHRM sensor targets rail market
The sensor is designed for tilt and suspension control of bogies or pantograph displacement position control on electric commuter, light rail and high speed trains. MH-Series MHRM’s launch brings proprietary Temposonics technology to the rail industry on a commercial level, providing the market with a cost-efficient position sensor.
MTS’s Sensor meets requirements for PCB coating, shock, vibration and EMC according to EN 50155. The new product is available for embedded or threaded installation and provides shock resistance according to EN 61373 Cat2 (Bogie) and Cat3 (Axle) and vibration resistance according to IEC 60068-2-64-Fn Cat3 (Axle).
The Temposonics MH-Series MHRM position sensors have a measurable stroke range from 50 mm up to 2500 mm with Analog voltage and current outputs. The threaded sensor has a highly robust stainless steel housing and is water- and dustproof according to IP69K. The M12 connector system used on both the threaded and embedded installations is rated at IP69K.
The proprietary Temposonics magnetostrictive technology utilised by MH-Series sensors means that these devices are not vulnerable to vibration, shock, dust and electro-magnetic interference. As a result, they can be deployed in the most difficult of application settings—maintaining elevated levels of accuracy without risk of downtime or subsequent loss of productivity being witnessed.
