The SG150 wire-actuated encoder from SIKO offers a wide variety of potential applications by making it possible to fit various encoders, irrespective of which signal output is required. In this case, users are able to fit the encoder themselves using simple equipment. The encoder also has the necessary standard features for outdoor use, which is always a possibility with mobile machines: a working temperature range of -40°C to +80°C, a robust aluminum die cast housing and drainage outlets that can be used to remove fluids that get into the device. With the new and unique "Wire-Flex" technology, it is possible to ensure that the wear on the wire is kept to a minimum, even if it pulls out at an angle. The conical shape of the wire outlet and the plastic coated steel wire ensure that any deposits on the wire can be removed easily. Internally the wire is wound in a single layer on the measuring drum, which ensures a high degree of linearity over the entire measurement range.
