NOVOTECHNIK U.S. TM1 Series of magnetostrictive linear hydraulic and pneumatic position sensors with compact housing. A magnetic ring-shaped marker is affixed to your application’s moving cylinder and moves up and down the TM1 rod without contact. Device series stroke lengths are from  50 to 2,000mm in 25mm steps. Operating pressure is up to 5,076 psi (350 bar) with peaks to 6,526 psi (450 bar). Both plug-in and screw type flange models are available. Key specifications include absolute linearity of ≤ 0.04% F.S. (min. 0.3 mm) and repeatability of ≤ ±0.1 mm. Output options include 4 to 20 mA current as well as voltage output of 0.25 to 4.75V, 0.5 to 4.5V or 0.1 to 10V.
