  • 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.
