Custom eddy current, draw wire sensors for subsea oil and gas

Click to Enlarge

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.
