    Compact Long Range Draw Wire Displacement Sensor | Low Cost | MK120

    Compact, Longer Range, Low Cost & Ideal for OEM Applications

    At a Glance

    • Measuring Range: 0-3000mm, 0-5000mm, 0-7500mm Analogue Only
    • Outputs Include: Potentiometer / Voltage / Current
    • Environmental Protection: IP65
    • Non-Linearity: <±0.15% of Full Scale Output
    • Low Cost Ideal for OEM
    • Customised Versions for High Volume Available
    • Compact and longer Measuring Range
    • Analogue Only
    • Potentiometer, Voltage and Current Output
    • Robust Plastic Housing


    The MK120 compact long range draw wire displacement sensor is small, low cost and has a measuring range of 0-2300mm, 0-3500mm and 0-5000mm.  They are low cost and customer specific designs makes it ideal for high volume OEM applications.  They feature a robust plastic housing and a very compact design, enabling it to fit into the smallest of spaces.

    The MK120 compact long range draw wire displacement sensor is analogue only with a non-linearity better than ±0.15% of the full scale output.

    For a compact yet small measuring range try the MK30 low range draw wire displacement sensor.
