Magnetostrictive Displacement Transducer (MDT)

The RMC150 MDT interface module allows the use of Magnetostrictive Displacement Transducers as linear position feedback devices with the RMC150 series of high-performance motion controllers. These absolute-position transducers are especially well suited for hydraulic applications because of their non-contact design, robustness, modularity, and resistance to contaminants.

RMC150 MDT modules support Start/Stop and Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) transducers. The RMC150 can be configured to trigger from the rising or falling edges on Start/Stop transducers.

Non-contact Magnetostrictive Displacement Transducers MDTs with SSI output are supported by the RMC150 SSI module.


Current output up to ±200mA is available with the VC2100 or VC2124 converter option (see Motion Control Accessories).
