New Temposonics MH-Series MHRM sensor targets rail market
The Temposonics MH Series MHRM sensor, which has been specially developed for the railway market, is now available.
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).
"With the new Temposonics® MH-Series MHRM sensor, our customers now have a product that does not require a separate protected power supply to utilize 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."
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 utilized 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.
