*For magnetostrictive displacement transducers (MDTs), the Start-Stop configuration is the native mode of operation, and typically gives the best price/performance when used with compatible motion controllers such as the RMC150 Series.

**Many MDTs are available with an optional synchronous serial interface (SSI). This extra-cost option offers several advantages including higher resolution and factory gain compensation while retaining the absolute position characteristics.

This is only a partial list. The RMC150 motion controllers can interface with transducers from a wide range of manufacturers providing they meet the industry-standard interface specifications supported by the RMC150.
