MTS Systems Corp.'s Sensors Division designed its MH series of magnetostrictive position sensors to fit into embedded applications in hydraulic cylinders with a minimal impact on the cylinder-installed envelope. The series targets mobile cylinders used in on- and off-highway machinery.

Each sensor has three primary components: magnetostrictive sensing element, sensing electronics, and an application housing that protects the internal components from varying environmental conditions. The pressure housing comes in 7mm and 10mm diameters, with static pressure ratings of 4,300psi and 5,000psi, respectively.

The measuring range is 50mm to 1m with an accuracy of 0.005 percent, which is adequate for most mobile sensing applications. Pricing begins at $250 in OEM quantities.
