Draw-wire sensors offer larger measuring ranges 


To better serve applications in mobile machinery for the measurement of boom and support positions, Micro-Epsilon has expanded its wireSENSOR WPS-MK88 and wireSENSOR WPS-K100 series of draw-wire sensors with larger measuring ranges and CANopen interface.

The wireSENSOR K100 series of draw-wire displacement sensors measure distance and position precisely, combining high performance for outdoor use with an excellent price/performance ratio. The series now offers a larger measuring range of up to 8m, as well as a CANopen interface for all measuring ranges up to 8m, making the sensors ideal for off-highway vehicles, mobile machinery, mobile cranes and lifting technology. The compact K100 series is protected by a glass fibre-reinforced plastic housing, as well as separate drum and spring spaces, making the sensors extremely robust (IP69K) against external influences.

The MK88 series of draw-wire sensors has also been expanded with a larger measuring range of up to 6m, as well as a CANopen interface for all measuring ranges up to 6m. The MK88 is specially designed for mobile applications in series, such as mobile cranes and mobile working platforms. The combination of compact size, robustness and price makes the sensors unique, offering new potential in design and cost optimisation.
