Wire absolute encoder WPS

Wire transducers series WPS 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 – EtherCAT, PROFINET, Profibus, CANopen or SSI output signal.

The encoder grants high resolutions values (28 or 29 bit) and two availble strokes: 2300 or 5000 mm.

The housing is out of glass fiber reinforced nylon, whilst the wire consists of coated poliamide stainless steel.


  • Available strokes: 2300, 5000 mm
  • Glass fiber reinforced nylon housing
  • Coated poliamide stainless steel wire
  • Wire diameter 0.45 mm
  • Wire acceleration 5 g
  • Wire retraction force (min) 3 N
  • Wire extension force (max) 9 N

ELAP encoders to be coupled:

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