The extremely robust heavy-duty length sensors from FSG operate according to the cable pulling principle and are suitable for positioning tasks in demanding environments, such as dusty or humid atmospheres. They are equipped with a plastic-coated stainless steel cable with a diameter of 3 mm and have an integrated cable brake.
The standard measuring range is 4 m. The devices can be easily installed and combined with single- or multi-turn rotary encoders that convert the length-proportional number of drum revolutions into an analog or digital measuring signal. In addition to FSG rotary encoders, other commercially available rotary encoders can also be installed. Output signals are optionally transmitted via an analog interface, Eg 4 ... 20 mA or digital interfaces such as CAN open, CAN open Safety or a resolver interface.
