Wire-actuated encoder SGP/1

robust design with analog output and 6000 mm measurement length

Wire-actuated encoder with analog output, potentiometric, current source or voltage output, with a measuring length of up to 6000 mm. Easy adjustment of the output signal to the actual measuring length via an integrated gear mechanism.

Profile SGP/1:

  • Robust design
  • Measurement lengths up to max. 6000 mm
  • Potentiometer, voltage or power output
  • Housing made of aluminum and plastic
  • Potentiometer/resistance range adapted to actual measurement length via an integrated gear
  • Various wire types

Hint for mounting

When securing the wire it must be ensured that the wire is straight and vertical in relation to the wire outlet.  Recommendation: Only select the starting position after an unwound length of approx. 5 mm. This prevents the wire hitting the end stop when it is rewound.
