MTS Systems Temposonics Model MH Sensor
June 6, 2012

MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division has developed a new Temposonics Model MH sensor, marketed as the SIL2 with analog output or Can  Safety interface, that meets industry safety standards required in high risk applications such as crane and fire engine outrigger controls. The Model MH sensor is available for use with both analog signal and CAN Safety protocols that meet the requirements of Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2) under IEC 61508 and Performance Level d of ISO 13849-1. These requirements ensure that communication between the sensor and the electronic controller is accurate and unaffected by external influences. This is especially critical in high-precision applications, such as outriggers, where even the smallest deviation can be devastating.
