Automated Control and ASM introduce the new WB100M tape extension position sensor. The WB100M has been designed to measure reliably under extreme offshore conditions. It is highly resistant to shock and operational to IP68/69K in sea water.
The WB100M series of sensors exceeds all expectations when used in areas of difficult access and pulley wheels are used to change the direction of the tape route. On conventional draw wire sensors the use of these pulleys can considerably reduce the life of the draw wire. But with the WB100M, the stainless steel measurement tape will have at least double the life compared to that of a measurement cable under identical operating conditions.
Developed primarily for offshore oil drilling rigs and outdoor applications, the WB100M is well suited to wet, harsh applications often found in dock sites such as cranes and ramp positions or even sluice gates found on inland waterway systems.
The fully encapsulated electronics ensure that no moisture can penetrate the critical areas where as water is allowed to freely flow through the mechanical areas with no effect due to the use of materials specifically selected to work well in a salt water environment.
Available in measuring lengths from 2000mm up to 10000mm
A wide range of analog or digital outputs including CAN SAE J1939
Linearity is rated up to +/- 0.05% full scale
IP68/69K enclosure ratings
Measuring tape principle ensures long operating life
