Stainless steel tape position sensor

  • 17-Jan-2011 03:05 EST

Offering a 6.5 ft (1.8 m) measurement range in a compact 2 x 2 x 3.3 in (51 x 51 x 84 mm), rugged housing, ASM Sensors’ WB10ZG tape position sensor consists of a specially produced stainless steel tape that is taken up onto a precision-machined drum. With its high degree of flexibility, the steel tape is suitable for a wide range of applications with harsh environments and tight locations as well as where pulleys are required due to space constraints that prevent the direct inline measurement. In areas where icing can occur, the flat, smooth surface of the tape also allows for the quick removal of ice accumulation. The standard tape brush continuously wipes the tape surface to remove debris. A part of the POSITAPE family of stainless steel tape position sensors, the WB10ZG sensor is available with 0.5-4.5 V, 0.5-10 V, and 4-20 mA analog outputs or SSI, CANopen, CAN SAE J1939 digital outputs.
