Subsea oil and gas applications are served by this company’s custom eddy current and draw wire sensors.
wireSENSOR draw-wire (string pot) displacement sensors use three main measurement methods: a multi-turn potentiometer, an incremental encoder, or an absolute encoder.
One of these devices is mounted onto the drum axle. This converts the rotary motion of the drum into a signal that can be evaluated. Measured displacement can be output as an analog current, voltage, or potentiometric signal. For digital output, there is a choice of HTL or TTL with interfaces for most of the common fieldbus systems. wireSENSORS measure from 50 mm to 50 m around corners and edges.
