The P96 industrial mid range draw wire displacement sensor has a measuring range of between 0-2000mm up to 0-3000mm. They are housed in a robust aluminium enclosure and have a dust tight and water tight protection to IP65 (for a IP69K rating see our K100 draw wire sensor). The P96 series of industrial draw wire sensors also feature mounting grooves giving them greater flexibility of use in harsh industrial environments.
The analogue P96 industrial mid range draw wire displacement sensor is available as a hybrid potentiometer sensing element, while the digital P96 version is available as both incremental and absolute encoder versions. The hybrid analogue version offers a resolution towards infinite.
Both a digital and analogue output versions are available for greater flexibility. Both absolute and incremental encoder options have a significantly longer service life and better linearity of ±0.02% of full scale output compared to analogue potentiometers which have a non-linearity of ±0.1%.
Incremental encoders are used where the relative position displacement should be measured. In contrast, an absolute encoder assigns a unique position value to each measured value.
