This wire type encoder is designed for measuring lengths and distances of linear and near-linear movements. It uses a flexible nylon-jacked steel cable, spring-loaded spool and high precision optical encoder to give a measurement of cable extension in harsh environments.

The sensor provides a quadrature ABZ NPN open collector type output pulses with a resolution of 1 pulse per mm.

Draw wire sensors are also known in the industry as cable transducers, cable-extension transducers, string potentiometers, draw wire transducers, yo yo pots, linear position string pots, and string encoders.
