Position sensors AWP 220 series

Image AWP 220

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 5700 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 1000 mm up to 5700 mm
  • Potentiometric, 4-20mA and 0-10VDC output options
  • High strength stainless 0.8mm 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
