Position sensors AWP 820 series

Image AWP 820

The AWP 820 series draw wire sensors are cable actuated position transducers which convert linear movement to potentiometric output. These transducers can be used in outdoor environments, featuring IP67 protection class or optional IP68.

Another main feature of this model is the option of dual potentiometer inside, which enables the sensor to continue measuring even if one potentiometer fails due to any reason.

They are offered with dif ferent stroke lengths, up to 10000 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 6000 mm up to 10000 mm
  • Potentiometric, 4-20mA, 0-10VDC and CANopen output options
  • Redundant output option
  • High strength stainless 1mm steel wire
  • 0.5 m/s maximum speed
  • 2.4N retraction force
  • IP 67 Protection class
  • Shock and Vibration resistant
  • Aluminum anodized body
  • Excelent option for measurement systems where high resolution is not required


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