MTS Sensors brings Proprietary Temposonics Technology to the Rail Industry
A leading developer of temposonic technology has released a range of position sensors which specifically targets the rail industry. Designed for tilt and suspension control of bogies or pantograph displacement position control on trains, the MH-Series Railway sensor provides the market with cost-effective sensor technology.
In this article, PIF spoke to MTS Sensors about their MH-Series railway position sensors and how they brought their signature temposonic technology to the railway industry.
MH-Series Railway Position Sensors
MTS’s MHRM 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).
“With the new Temposonics MH-Series Railway Sensor, our customers now have a product that does not require a separate protected power supply to utilise MTS Temposonics linear position sensing,” explains Luka Korzeniowski, Global Market Segment Leader for Mobile Hydraulics at MTS Sensors. Korzeniowski continued “We’ve been working with our customers on their electrical and environmental needs to address the Rail market specifically.”
Temposonic Technology for the Railway Industry
The Temposonics MH-Series Railway 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 electromagnetic 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.
