Tape extension sensor in a compact housing

Tape extension sensor in a compact housing New from ASM is the WB21 tape extension sensor which provides up to 20,000mm measuring length in a compact housing. Due to the design of the sensor and the inherent strength of the stainless steel tape, they can be used in environments and areas where other sensors struggle to survive such as hard to reach areas where directional changing pulleys are used or where temperature extremes cause problems.

ASM says the life of these tape extension sensors is totally unaffected by the use of pulleys which makes them the perfect choice for safety critical areas often found in crane operation or the mobile working market in general.

This new sensor is made from a quality moulded housing which enables lower construction costs for a rugged sensor that meets a high sealing level of IP67/69K (operational) making it an affordable choice for today's demanding markets. It is also available with a choice of three analogue and three digital outputs (SSI, CANopen or CAN J1939) a linearity of ±0.10% with the option of redundant outputs. The WB21 is perfectly suited for installation on cranes, excavators, forklift trucks, hoists and access platforms.
