Die Cast Metal
This model is best suited for long stroke applications in demanding environments. Its die cast housing and its 0.86 mm [0.34 in] diameter nylon coated stainless steel wire makes it an excellent choice for outdoor applications like offshore cranes, spreaders, irrigation, water gate positioning and mining. In combination with precise optical or magnetic absolute rotary encoders, very high linear resolutions can be achieved. Unlike potentiometer based draw wires, POSITAL’s rotary encoders do not loose accuracy over time irrespective of whether an analog or digital interface.
