PFA Wire linear potentiometer

Wire potentiometer position transducer that translates a linear motion into an analog output. Available with a strokes lengths of 3200 mm to 12200mm. They are made of a precision rotating potentiometer operated by a winding or unwinding stainless steel wire.

Available outputs include resistance (0-10kOhms), current (4-20mA), voltage (0-10vdc) and serial (RS485, MODBUS, PROFIBUS, CANopen).

Measure linear motions on cranes, rolling shutters, cylindrical-, hydraulic-, pneumatic stroke, automatic-, wood-, marble-, glassworking machinery, etc.
