MTS Announces New SEF TechnologyOctober 23, 2001 by Jeff Shepard
MTS Systems Corp. (Cary, NC) announced a new continuous level-sensing technology, or shaped electromagnetic field (SEF). As an alternative to resistive float and arm devices, SEF-based sensors offer floatless operation, absolute measurement and take up less space at a cost parity in volume.
The new SEF technology can be shaped to linearize the volume output in tanks with non-uniform, irregular cross-sectional areas as the level rises. They can also be shaped to fit into serpentine paths.
This patent-pending level-sensing technology is intended for designers of automotive, marine, agricultural and recreational fluid systems, medical systems, appliance control, and others.
