Position sensors AWP 116 series

Image AWP116

The AWP series are wire potentiometric position transducers that turn a linear motion into a resistance variation. They are made of a precision rotating potentiometer operated by a, winding or unwinding, stainless steel wire.

They are offered with dif ferent stroke lengths, up to 6100 mm, and can be used in many different applications hydraulic cylinders, fact ory automation, medical devices, structural testing, robotics and main industrial machinery.


  • Measurement length from 1600 mm up to 6100 mm
  • Potentiometric 5kohm or 10kohm output options
  • High strength stainless steel wire
  • 2 m/s maximum speed
  • Shock and Vibration resistant
  • Easy mounting with small body design
  • Delrin housing
  • IP40 protection grade


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