Position sensors AWP 508 series

Image AWP 508

The AWP508 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 8000 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 4000 mm up to 8000 mm
  • Potentiometric, 4-20mA, 0-10VDC and CANopen output options
  • High strength stainless steel wire
  • 2 m/s maximum speed
  • 10N retraction force
  • Shock and Vibration resistant
  • Easy mounting with small body design
  • IP67 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
