Position sensors AWE 120 series

Image AWE 120

AWE 120 wire encoders are incremental wire transducers that turn a linear motion into coded digital pulses. Optionally stroke lengths, resolution, cable length and socket connector can be requested.

They are made of an incremental encoder, activated by the stroke of a, winding or unwinding, stainless steel wire.

A special feature is their easy assembling. The linking together to a display or an electronic positioner supplies an excellent system to measure the dimensions on machine tools, automatic, wood, marble, glassworking machinery, among many other applications.


  • Measurement length from 300 mm up to 2750 mm
  • A, /A, B, /B, Z and /Z encoder signal output options
  • Push-Pull and TTL Line Driver outputs
  • High strength stainless 0.5mm steel wire
  • 0.5 m/s maximum speed
  • 2.4N retraction force
  • Shock and Vibration resistant
  • Easy mounting with small body design


  • Automatic shutter systems
  • Measurement of linear motion in cranes
  • Cylindrical, hydraulic or pneumatic piston systems
  • Woodworking machines
  • Glass and marble machines
  • Manufacturing machines
