Emerson Introduces Magnetic Target Switch for Position Sensing in Standard-duty and Extreme-duty Operation Environments

TopWorx MTS features globally approved certifications and specifications, helping to avoid approval delays

Florham Park, N.J. (Feb. 8, 2021) – Emerson, a global leader in fluid control and pneumatics technology, has released its TopWorxTM Magnetic Target Switch (MTS) to provide ready-to-install, universallycertified position sensing for explosion proof and intrinsically safe applications. The hazardous locationsapproved TopWorx MTS joins the TopWorx GOTM Switch in the Emerson portfolio of position-sensing products, providing a single source for both standard and heavy-duty position sensors.

The TopWorx MTS is a magnetic, target-actuated, barrel-style switch designed to deliver trusted performance and outstanding value in applications ranging from standard industrial to extreme-duty. Featuring universal certifications including IECEx, ATEX, UL, and CSA, the TopWorx MTS can help reduce time to market by avoiding approval delays.

Available in general purpose, intrinsically safe or explosion proof area classifications, the 316L stainlesssteel design of the MTS resists corrosion, making it suitable for use in environments including oil and gas, chemical, industrial energy, on-site utilities, mining, minerals and metals, power generation, pulp and paper, waste and wastewater.

“With a tiered range of sensing products, our customers can rely on a single, trusted supplier for everything from standard to extreme-duty capabilities,” said Jeff Jones, global sensing products leader, Emerson. “Alongside our heavy-duty GO Switch, the MTS is the perfect choice for cost-conscious position sensing in explosion proof and intrinsically safe applications.”

The TopWorx MTS is built to the same industry-leading standards as the TopWorx switchbox, switchbox enclosures, bus networking, sensor and solenoid valve technology to deliver outstanding value and trusted performance in hazardous locations requiring explosion proof and intrinsically safe applications.
