Measuring lengths up to 50 m, rugged design - the heavy-duty wire draw encoder

With wire draw lengths from 2 to 50 m, the HighLine series of wire draw encoders have enormous range. Thanks to guide rollers, the HighLine series enables flexible measurement paths - even around obstacles. Their rugged housing and dirt-resistant brush assemblies allow the encoder to be used in the toughest of environments, including dust, shock and vibration, which ensure a long service lifetime.

At a glance
  • Measuring lengths: 2 m ... 50 m
  • Modular measuring system with a wide selection of interfaces/measuring lengths
  • Very rugged system (dirt scraper, integrated brushes)
  • High-quality winding mechanism and wire input
  • High enclosure rating
  • High shock and vibration resistance
  • Extremely high resolution possible
  • Expandable using external accessories
