Sensor Web Site Offers Notes for Medical Applications

by Zachary Turke (Click on picture to go to site).

A supplier of magnetostrictive linear displacement technology worldwide, MTS Sensors Corp. (Cary, NC) has launched a new Web site specifically for medical device designers. Hosted at, the site explores ways in which the company's products can be used in healthcare position- and level-sensing applications. "We felt that the medical market deserved a quick resource on how our magnetic technology could be applied," explains commercial products manager Jesse Russell. "Our application notes make it easy for designers to consider these sensors in their next design," he adds.

The on-line application notes include hospital beds, dental chairs, infusion pumps, and fluid-handling devices. These materials are downloadable and supplemented with new product information as it becomes available. For people unfamiliar with magnetostrictive products, the notes can be used in conjunction with the page's tutorial section and glossary of common terms. 

The Web site also allows users to access the company's on-line catalog library. Similar to a print catalog, this virtual resource contains the company's entire product line and may be browsed page by page or searched using part number, type, or product description. Each page is available in JPG or PDF format. A product-selector guide is also available to simplify specification.
