Tape extension position sensor with stainless steel tape

Latest News

Automated Control Engineering Group (A.C.E.) and ASM have expanded the range of tape extension position sensors, with the introduction of the WB25 series.

The WB25’s flexible measurement tape is constructed out of a high grade stainless steel material that is 10 mm wide with only a 0.08 mm thickness. Due to its smooth surface, the risk of icing is reduced. An integral tape dust wiper automatically cleans the tape as it is being retracted into the housing.

The angular sensing element consists of a magnetic encoder which translates the linear motion into an electrical signal. This reliable magnetic encoder is shock and vibration resistant.

This allows it to function under demanding environmental conditions. The rugged construction of the WB25 series provides for a long-life even under harsh operating conditions such as those found in off-highway vehicles and construction equipment.

The WB25 series features:
• Standard IP64 enclosure rating (optional IP67 available)
• Analog outputs: 0.5-10V, 0.5-4.5 and 4-20 mA
• Digital outputs: CANopen, CAN SAE J1939 and SSI protocols
• Linearity: +/- 0.05%
• Measurement ranges: 12m, 15m, 20m and 25m
• Compact housing
