Cable-actuated sensors, also known as cable-extension transducer, stringpots or draw-wire sensors, can detect and measure linear position and velocity using a flexible cable and spring-loaded spool.

The cable-actuated sensors are available with measurement ranges up to 10 meters (394 inches). Potentiometric, analog (0-5V, 0-10V, 4-20mA) and digital outputs (incremental, openCAN) are available on many models.
