Draw Wire Sensors – overview of characteristics

Draw wire sensors by WayCon are available in many different models and with a variety of output signals. The following chart can help you to choose the right sensor for your measuring task.

Measurement ranges from 50 mm up to 50000 mm allow accurate length measurement in various fields of application. Examples for these applications are illustrated and explain on the application page.

The measurement principle of draw wire sensors is based on the measurement of way and length und is explained on its own subpage.

If you want detailed advice on length measurement, our competent consulting team as well as our partners worldwide are at your disposal. You can also leave us a message and we will contact you as soon as possible.
