Following the founding of MTS in 1951 (Headquarters in Minneapolis, USA) the company rapidly developed into a leading supplier of test and simulation systems and magnetostrictive sensor technology. Today MTS Systems Corporation has about 2000 employees worldwide and offers innovative solutions for world-famous companies from the automotive industry, aerospace equipment, manufacturing, medical companies, research institutes and original equipment manufactures. 

In 1970 MTS Sensors was the first to employ the principle of magnetostriction for position sensors and liquid level gauges. We have thus rendered valuable pioneering work in the development of high-precision, future-oriented sensors. At three sites Lüdenscheid (Germany), Cary (North Carolina, USA) and Tokyo (Japan) 300 employees work in development, production and sales of linear position and liquid level sensors. Intensive basic research is efficiently merged with a consistent focus on practical requirements. Result is innovative sensor technology for a wide range of potential industrial and non-industrial applications.

Optimum performance for industrial applications - this is what the Temposonics R-Series position sensors offer. As a high end product, this sensor series is the racehorse of MTS. Powerful electronics and unrivalled immunity against interference are a warranty of the transducer's high-accuracy measurement results.
