Draw-Wire Sensors for High Speed Measurements

Miniature MP and MT draw-wire sensors are designed for measurement tasks with fast wire movements. Their robust aluminum housing makes the sensors suitable for industrial applications. The MP and MT draw-wire sensors are equipped with a potentiometer.

Draw-Wire Sensors for Integration & OEM

MK series miniature draw-wire sensors are specially designed for high volume serial applications. The user benefits from a low price and compact sensor dimensions, therefore gaining new potential in design and cost optimization. As well as analog versions with potentiometer, current or voltage output, digital versions with incremental or absolute encoders are available.

Industrial Draw-Wire Sensors for Long-Life operation

Draw-wire sensors of the P series are designed for industrial measurement tasks. A compact and robust aluminum housing protects the sensor from mechanical damage. As well as analog versions with potentiometer, current or voltage output, digital versions with incremental or absolute encoders are available, providing measuring ranges up to 50m.
