String transducers SR1 series are intended for identifying locations in humid conditions and for external applications.
SR1 series, designed for measuring ranges up to 175”, offers 4 optional output signals in the industrial standard: potentiometer, incremental encoder, user-friendly 4-20 mA and 0-10 V with learning option, which allows to precisely scale in any area for any leap even for just few cm.
What is a cable length-measuring transducer?
Cable length measuring transducers, also called cable extension transducers or line distance transducers, allow measuring the linear change in location and to follow by using track cable of a given object’s movement. A cable transducer is an electromechanical device from the automation sector, working based on a change in linear movement to the proportional to relocation electric signal, that is, a countable change is resistance or number of impulses. They have various ranges of distance, even from 100 mm to several dozens of meters.
In which applications cable extension transducers can be beneficial?
Assets of cable extension transducers:
Measurements in hard to reach places,
The simplicity of montage,
Resilience to vibrations,
Possibility of usage in harsh environments e.g. with high temperatures.
Applications of cable length measuring transducers:
Cable length measuring transducers can be used in sectors like industrial automatics, medical technology, control of materials, building and vehicle safety, and control over hydraulics. Some of the most common applications are:
Control of the extension of telescopic lift arms or lift trucks.
