Temposonics® C Series Modular Linear-Position Sensor

Supplier: Davidson Measurement Pty Ltd

The C-Series modular sensor line was created to support industrial, medical and consumer product OEMs who recognize the benefits of magnetostrictive position sensing technology but didn’t have a product solution that could be tailored to their high volume but low-cost driven sensing needs.

Price Guide: POA

This line is a more reliable, no wear measurement system compared to traditional alternatives such as pots and LVDT’s.

No other magnetostrictive sensor manufacturer can offer such a small, embeddable or externally mountable, yet highly malleable sensor at high volume pricing that is attractive for high volume OEM products. (Also available is a stainless steel float and retainer for level applications.)


  • Non-contact - No wear, such as found with pot wipers on conductive mylar, particularly when mounted on dithered actuators
  • Light Weight - Ideal for small portable OEM products
  • Low Cost - Total Cost Competitive* with linear pots or LVDT’s
  • Short Operating Space - Half the space needed compared to LVDT's or rod and cylinder pots
  • Small Size - This smallest package in the market that has all the benefits of magnetostrictive sensing yet fits where no other can
  • Easy Interfacing - Choice of Analogue or self-interrogating PWM signals
  • Low Power Needs - Allows use with printed circuit-level supplies of 5 Vdc
  • No Drift - No periodic re-calibration needed
  • Optional Supply Voltages - Allows use in 12 or 24-volt systems
  • Optional Housings - Allows exposed use by offering mounting options and several levels of environmental protection
  • Optional Magnets - Other magnet configurations allow greater range of installation choices
  • Customisable Active Zones - Offers full output sensitivity for smaller active zones
  • Customisable Reading Direction - Forward or Reverse acting analogue output allows match to control requirements
