Magnetostrictive sensor touts industry’s smallest size

Cary, N.C. — MTS Systems Corp. Sensors Division says it has developed the industry’s smallest magnetostrictive position sensor. The new modular Temposonics C-Series linear-position sensor fits into a 36 mm (1.4 in.) x 23 mm (0.91 in.) cylindrical package, making it a smaller replacement for older technology sensors such as linear potentiometers and LVDTs.
