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.
- Opkon DW-series contains both encoder model DWE and potentiometer model DWP
- DWE-model has incremental output and measuring range of 1000-3500 mm when resolution is 0,2 mm
- In DWP-model the measuring range is 800 or 1800 mm
