Draw Wire Linear Sensors. Penny + Giles has launched a new range of draw-wire linear sensors. DLS is a compact sensor that provides accurate measurement in a range of strokes up to 5000mm and is suited for use where space is a constraint or where traditional linear potentiometers are not suitable. There are three sensors in the range: DLS-P60 has a measurement range from 100 to 1500mm; DLS-P96 has a measurement range from 2000 to 3000mm; and DLS-P1 15 has a measurement range from 3000 to 5000mm. All are encased in a high strength aluminium housing and sealed to P65 for use in harsh environments. They provide virtually infinite resolution with a long life cycle and can withstand temperatures from -20 to 80°C. The highly flexible stainless steel measuring wire is wound onto a drum with the aid of a long-life spring motor. The winding drum is linked axially to a multi-turn potentiometer, incremental encoder or absolute encoder. Linear movement is transformed into a rotation by the draw-wire principle and converted into a proportional analogue signal or to countable increments. The sensors can be supplied with a choice of analogue outputs (potentiometer, 0-10Vdc voltage or two-wire 4-20mA current) or digital outputs provided by encoders. The sensor can be orientated in any direction and has mounting grooves on four sides of the housing to make the sensors easy to install. A range of accessories is also available to assist the user during installation including. ____________________________________________________ For more information, please contact :- Penny & Giles Controls Ltd.
