MTS Systems Corp. announces its compact MH sensor with a CANbus interface which is suitable for use in welded and tie-rod cylinders, or in any space-limited cylinder applications. It works with CAN J1939 and CANopen, measuring displacement and speed variables. The sensor is reliable inside a hydraulic cylinder even when subjected to the harsh conditions. With a 100g shock and 25g vibration rating, the sensor operates in rugged environments such as those encountered in construction, agriculture and off-highway machinery. A re-designed mechanical housing provides a robust wire/cable exit that improves the level of strain relief and sealing. The sensor consists of a sensor head with rugged housing and built-in electronics, a pressure-proof sensor pipe that protects the internal sensing element and a position magnet.
