MTS Systems "Smart" Temposonics III Series position sensors with DeviceNet interface, available from Thermo Fisher Scientific, expand the functionality of position sensors.
DeviceNet is a bus architecture that allows up to 64 nodes to share one data highway.
It provides precise, fast, and reliable data processing for high-speed control in industrial automation applications, multi-tasking capabilities, simplified bus wiring, sensor-based diagnostics, and easy expandability.
Temposonics III sensors offer modular construction and non-contacting magnetostrictive technology.
Two application housings are available: rod-style (Model RH) and profile style (Model PB). The Model RH sensor cartridge can be quickly replaced in the field for sensor lengths up to 72 inches (1830mm).
