Linear position sensors, or linear displacement transducers (LDT), provide continuous position feedback for motion control in a variety of industrial applications. For example, feedback of piston position inside hydraulic cylinders, injector and mold position in plastics machinery, or blade pitch positioning on wind turbines all use linear position sensors from MTS Sensors. This video provides an “X-Ray vision” look inside the working machinery of industrial applications.
MTS Sensors (a Division of MTS Systems) delivers leading-edge linear position sensors for industrial and mobile hydraulics and is the world's leading supplier of magnetostrictive-based sensor products. MTS’ Temposonics technology remains the key technology brand for the industrial and mobile hydraulic markets and reflects an ongoing commitment to accurate and reliable position measurement technology development.
