Product Exclusive: Robust, reliable, and cost-effective draw wire encoders

Instead of costly and complicated mounting options, the new draw wire encoders from Kübler find the balance between price and performance.


The new draw wire encoder is one of three new models from Kübler that bridges price and performance to deliver a simple and reliable automation solution. Courtesy: KüblerInstead of costly and complicated mounting options, effective automation solutions can be both economical and simple. With its new series of mobile and robust draw wire encoders, Kübler builds the perfect bridge between price and performance. Made of stainless steel, the new A30, A41, and B75 encoders allow absolute and incremental position measurement. Depending on the model, they measure lengths between 0.6 m and 3 m with speeds between 0.8 and 1 meter per second. Especially intended for applications in mobile automation, conveyor technology, woodworking machinery, and municipal vehicles, these cost-effective linear sensors are reliable and long-lasting. Their simple, space-saving installation and sturdy zinc die-cast housing make these draw wire encoders a basic solution for a wide range of length, travel, and position measuring tasks. These new systems are available with analogue sensors and incremental or absolute encoders.
