Positek Ltd now offers a full range of Cable Extension Transducers


Cable Extension Transducers have different names and are also referred to as; string pots draw wire sensors, cable actuated sensors.

A cable extension transducer is a type of position sensor which measures and detects linear position through the use of a extendable cable and a spring loaded spool.

Cable extension transducers are used to precisely measure linear position in a range of environments. They are generally robust meaning they can be used in wet, dirty or out-door surroundings.

Our range of cable extension transducers can be easily installed, many come with a mounting bracket. They offer a wide range of stroke lengths from 25mm up to 43m.


Uses for Cable Extension Transducers

Cable extension transducers are an alternative way of measuring linear position and can be used for the following;• Crane control
• Hoists
• Platform levelling
• Material handlings
• Hydraulic cylinder positioning
• Transportation systems
• Ferry loading ramps
• Flight simulators
• Bridge lifting and repositioning
