Turck expands its portfolio of linear position sensors especially for mobile hydraulics with the LTE series. This is characterized by the completely encapsulated installation in the Cylinder.
Why Was This Product Created?
Linear position sensors play an important role in automation. They provide accurate, reliable, absolute position feedback to help automate today’s sophisticated machinery. Sensors must deliver value, be easy to set up, and interface easily into the host controller.
We know today’s industrial challenges are extreme, so our technology partner designed and built a sensor to meet and exceed these demands, regardless of the application or environment. Innovation, proprietary technology and decades of experience were the key to the development of our LTE embedded linear position sensor.
The LTE was designed with the mobile hydraulics market in mind. The LTE is a rugged, accurate, programmable zero and span, auto-tuning, non-contact linear position sensor in a compact embedded rod-style package. The embedded package style allows the unit to be totally installed inside of a hydraulic cylinder, thus protecting the transducers from outside conditions. The transducer utilizes the field-proven magnetostrictive technology to give absolute analog position, accurate to 0.04 % of the programmable sensing distance. A variety of different analog outputs are available to meet your needs.
When it comes to linear position sensing the inductive linear position sensors of the LI
series are first choice due to their robust profile design. However, their design makes them unsuitable for use in hydraulic cylinders. The pressure-resistant linear position sensor series (LTE & LTX) close this gap.
Key Features and Benefits
Pounding, Continuous Vibrations, High Pressure, Extreme Temperatures, and Relentlessly Cycled. The LTE embedded sensor performs flawlessly in all types of mobile hydraulic cylinder applications.
Shock and Vibration
The LTE is designed to withstand extreme vibration of up to 30 G and shock up to 100 G. Our durability and reliability exceed competitive offerings to keep the equipment moving.
High accuracy, combined with 16-bit output resolution provides reliable, absolute position feedback to help automate today’s sophisticated mobile machinery. Programmable zero and span points allow you to adjust the output to exactly match the requirements.
Simplicity by Design
With its easy installation, intuitive interface with host controllers and drivers, and no annual calibrations or field adjustments required, you can be confident that the LTE will deliver an accurate reliable performance.
The magnetorestrictive transducers have been a leader in hydraulic cylinder applications for over 30 years. The field-proven technology delivers extreme accuracy and resolution, as well as high reliability and durability.
Unwanted effects like electromagnetic interference (EMI) can generate inaccurate feedback and cause serious damage to your equipment. The LTE embedded sensor provides superior electrical noise and emissions immunity in all types of mobile systems.
Versatile Power Supply
A wide input power range (from 8 to 30 VDC) allows the LTE to be used in a wide variety of industries and applications.
