Courtesy: Automated ControlsAutomated Control and ASM introduce the WS42 cable actuated position sensor. The WS42 features the integration of a precise encoder in an ultra-compact housing that offers multiple mounting configurations.

The WS42 sensor is capable of delivering a resolution of 6 pulses per mm with either 5 or 24 V output types. To compliment the digital version, the model WS42C offers an absolute, analog output with either 1 kΩ potentiometer, 10 V or 4-20 mA output. 

  • Protection class IP50
  • Economical design
  • Compact outline
  • Measurement range 0 to 750 mm
  • Mounting optional with mounting brackets or spacer nuts with internal thread
  • Analog output
