Temposonics R Series linear position sensors are designed to improve the filling process for facilities that package a wide variety of products. Where a packaging facility once required a complicated, bulky and costly combination scale to switch back and forth between various products during packaging cycles, these sensors are being used in equipment that is more compact and less expensive due to fewer moving parts, as the sensors have replaced a number of other components in the machine.
R Series sensors also increase the accuracy of fillers to improve consistency and reduce waste. R Series sensors provide linear, absolute measurement and non-contact sensing in a variety of outputs such as SSI, DeviceNet, Profibus, and EtherCAT. With non-linearity less than 0.01% and repeatability within 0.001%, these sensors suit packaging applications that require accuracy, reliability and consistency.
