Position sensors AWE 404 series

Image AWE 404

AWE 404 series wire encoders convert linear motion into incremental digital pulses. They have different stroke lengths up to 4200mm. Optionally other resolutions, cable lengths and socket connectors can be requested.

They make measurement by pulling and rewinding stainless steel wire. Usage is practical and usage area isquite wide. By connecting to a counter or position controller, they become a perfect system in high resolutions for position control in wood processing, marble machines, glass processing machines and other machines.


  • Measurement length from 1000 mm up to 4200 mm
  • Output: Incremental pulse, 0.1mm/pulse, 0.2mm/pulse, 0.05mm/pulse
  • High strength stainless steel wire
  • 2 m/s maximum speed
  • 5N retraction force
  • Shock and Vibration resistant
  • Easy mounting with small body design
  • IP65 protection class


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