Position sensors AWP 740 series

Image AWP740

The AWP 740 series are wire position transducers that turn a linear motion into a signal variation. They are made of a precision rotating magnetic encoder operated by a, winding or unwinding, stainless steel wire.

They are offered with 20000mm to 40000mm total range with programmable output signal span and zero, and can be used in many different applications hydraulic cylinders, fact ory automation, medical devices, structural testing, robotics and main industrial machinery.


  • Measurement length available from 20000mm to 40000mm (programmable signal output span and zero)
  • Voltage current and CANopen output options
  • High strength stainless steel wire
  • 1 m/s maximum speed
  • Shock and Vibration resistant
  • Easy mounting with small body design
  • Aluminium housing
  • IP67 protection grade


  • Automatic shutter systems
  • Measurement of linear motion in cranes
  • Cylindrical, hydraulic or pneumatic piston systems
