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 – EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, PROFINET, Profibus, CANopen or SSI output signal.

The encoder grants high resolutions values (28 or 29 bit) and stroke 2300 mm.

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


  • Stroke: 2300 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
