Image AWP 515

The AWP515 series are wire potentiometric position transducers that turn a linear motion into digital variations. They are made of a precision rotating encoder operated by a, winding or unwinding, stainless steel wire.

They are offered with different stroke lengths, up to 15000 mm (with programmable output option), 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 5000 mm up to 15000 mm
  • Potentiometric, 4-20mA, 0-10VDC and CANopen output options
  • High strength stainless steel wire
  • 1 m/s maximum speed
  • 12N 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
