Cable extension transducers (sometimes also called wire sensors) measure linear movement. The advantages of cable extension transducers include their suitability for different types of applications and low structural length compared to their measuring range. Cable extension transducers are available in all standard output signals, and there are also duplicated models for safety-critical applications.
Measuring ranges from 38 mm to 43 m making cable extension transducers suitable for many different applications. Sensor systems also has a special version of each of their models, which includes a built-in tilt sensor. This is especially useful in the measuring of different lengths of booms and of inclinations i.e. in the reach monitoring of hoists.
