Draw wire transducer
Draw-wire transducer wireSENSOR measure linear movements by means of a highly flexible steel cable. The cable of the draw-wire transducer is wounded on a drum which axis is coupled to a potentiometer or encoder. The cable head is mounted on the measuring object. If the distance of the measuring target regarding the draw-wire transducer changes, a rotary motion of the drum is generated which is converted into an electrical signal by an encoder or potentiometer and subsequently output.
Draw-wire transducers are suitable for wide measuring ranges. The rugged sensor construction ensures reliable operation even under keen ambient conditions.
Measuring ranges up to 50.000 mm
Suitable for industry an OEM applications
