Level Sensor with Foundation Fieldbus Output


CARY, N.C. (October 2, 2007) — MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division has developed a Foundation Fieldbus output for its Level Plus line of liquid level sensors. The Model MG digital sensor will have the optional Foundation Fieldbus output that is currently in beta testing, and expected to be approved around the beginning of the year. Foundation Fieldbus technology is the world's leading digital protocol for process automation, which provides end users with the freedom to choose interoperable control products from their suppliers of choice, and the ability to integrate control systems, subsystems and devices across a plant enterprise. The protocol will make MTS’ magnetostrictive sensors compatible with an even wider variety of control systems, expanding the company’s offerings to even more customers with pharmaceutical and hazardous environment applications.


“So many of our customers have realized the performance improvements as well as business benefits that result from implementing Foundation Fieldbus technology that they had been asking us to make our liquid-level sensors compatible with the protocol,” said Lee Aiken, product marketing manager, MTS Sensors. “Now customers can combine the superior control capabilities of the protocol with our sensors’ superior accuracy and reliability for an extremely efficient process.”


Once beta testing is complete, MTS will be able to offer the world’s first liquid level sensor based on magnetostrictive technology that offers a Foundation Fieldbus output with the ability to take level measurements up to 60 feet.


MTS Sensors’ high-performance liquid-level M-Series gauges utilize Temponsonics® magnetostrictive technology and offers a wide range of diagnostic, programming, and accessory options that make the liquid-level sensors ideal for tank gauging and process applications.
