The MK46 miniature draw wire displacement sensor is low cost, compact and measures ranges from 0-1000mm to 0-1250mm.  Their robust plastic housing and compact design, allows them to fit into small spaces.

Analogue potentiometer and digital encoder options are available to suit your application.  Analogue versions are available in measuring ranges of 0-1000mm to 0-1250mm, digital versions are available in 0-1250mm only.

For the analogue version of the MK46 miniature draw wire displacement sensor the non linearity is better than ±0.1% of the full scale output.  While the digital encoder version has a non-linearity of ±0.05% of the full scale output.
