ASM Sensors' Positape family of stainless steel tape position sensors includes the WB10ZG series that offers a 6.5 ft (2 m) measurement range in a 2 x 2 x 3.3 in (51 x 51 x 84 mm) housing. Highly flexible, the WB10ZG stainless steel tape features a long lifetime and is suited for harsh environment applications requiring pulleys where space constraints prevent direct inline measurement, such as off-highway vehicles and machinery. The tape's flat surface improves removal of ice accumulation, and the standard tape brush continuously wipes the surface to remove debris. A magnetic encoder translates the linear motion in an electrical signal, and an M12 connector provides an electrical connection during installation. The position transducer offers an enclosure rating of IP65 and is available with various outputs. Output linearity is +/- 0.05% full scale over the measurement range.
