Wire absolute encoder WDS

Wire transducers series WDS are composed by the draw-wire mechanics coupled to Elap multiturn absolute high-resolution encoder MEM-BUS or MEM. They can provide different communication protocols – EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, PROFINET, Profibus, CANopen or SSI output signal.

The encoder grants high resolutions values (28 or 29 bit) and strokes ranging from 3000 to 15000 mm.

The housing is out of aluminium, whilst the wire consists of coated poliamide stainless steel.


  • Available strokes: 3000, 5000, 7500, 10000, 15000 mm
  • Aluminium housing
  • Coated poliamide stainless steel wire


ELAP encoders to be coupled:

  • MEM520, SSI output,  multiturn, 28 bit resolution, Binary or Gray code
