HighLine WIRE DRAW ENCODER

Wire draw encoders – made-to-measure solutions for your applications

Wire draw encoders consist of a wire draw mechanism and an encoder. The rotation of the drum, which is proportional to the length being measured, is recorded and output by an encoder. This facilitates positioning on linear measuring paths. SICK’s wire draw encoders support a large selection of interfaces and facilitate easy system integration for applications in challenging industrial settings. Different performance classes make it possible to select the ideal device for the application at hand.
