Model LE Linear Cable Encoder

Brand: Red Lion Controls

The Linear Cable Encoder can provide an accurate, yet low cost solution for linear measurement applications. 

Common applications include robotics, extrusion presses, valve positioning, textile machinery, and gate control positioning, just to name a few. 

The LE has some unique advantages over other sensing solutions. 

Using a stainless steel cable, perfect parallel alignment is no longer required and with a 50 inch cable reach, it can easily be mounted away from harsh environments. 

The LE is available in a quadrature output, allowing the sensor to operate in positioning applications.
