Phidgets ENC4107_0 Draw Wire Encoder 1.5m Draw Wire Encoder
In complex mechanical systems, it is often very difficult to accurately measure the motion of a single part, especially when it has multiple degrees of freedom. The Draw Wire Encoder is a versatile solution to this very problem. It can be attached to a part with an M5 screw or attached to the end with a cable tie, and the encoder itself has a pair of M5 threads on the back for easy installation.
When the wire is pulled out, the sensor generates a quadrature signal that describes the length of the exposed wire. The coil is spring-loaded, meaning it retracts when the wire is no longer under tension. Multiple wire pull sensors can be used to track position in more than one dimension.
This quadrature encoder can be read from an encoder interface by attaching the appropriate connector to the end of the cable. See the Connection and Compatibility tab for more Information.
