ASM WB61 Tape Extension Sensor

Thursday, 28 March, 2013 | Supplied by: Automated Control Pty Ltd


The WB61 Tape Extension Sensor from ASM Sensor provides up to 4000 mm measuring length in a compact housing. All ASM tape extension sensors have been designed to operate in harsh conditions, making them suitable for the mobile working machine market and other harsh, demanding applications.

Due to the design of the sensor and the inherent strength of the stainless steel tape they can be used in environments and areas where other sensors struggle to survive, such as hard-to-reach areas where directional changing pulleys are used or where temperature extremes cause problems such as icing.

The life of the range of tape extension sensors is claimed to be unaffected by the use of pulleys, which makes them suitable for safety-critical areas often found in crane operation or the mobile working market in general.

The Model WB61 is made from a quality moulded housing which enables lower construction costs for a rugged sensor that meets a high sealing level of IP67/69K (operational). The sensor is also available with a choice of three analog and three digital outputs (SSI, CANopen or CAN J1939) and a linearity of ± 0.10% with the option of redundant outputs. The sensor is suitable for installation on cranes, excavators, forklift trucks, hoists and access platforms.
