RDW-PV Draw Wire Encoder

Newall's RDW-PV linear cable encoder provides linear position in a rugged, easy-to-install package. Simply connect the cable to the moving member of the machine and secure the base to a fixed object (or vice versa).

The retractable cable is made of nylon-coated stainless steel for strength, durability and long life. The RDW-PV's compact profile and ability to operate in harsh environments makes it a suitable solution for a variety of industrial applications.

Features of the wire encoder include:

  • IP66 environmental rating. Ideal for wet, dirty or even outdoor environments
  • Simple and adaptable installation
  • Linear guide way is not required
  • Measuring range up to 125" (3,175 mm)
  • Linear resolution to 0.0005" (0.01 mm)
  • Zero backlash coupling between integrated incremental encoder and drum.

Encoder for Spindle Axis of Boring Mill

It can often be difficult to install a linear encoder to the spindle axis of a machine tool. With the RDW-PV, attach the wire to the spindle assembly and mount the encoder to the machine surface. The RDW-PV can be used with Newall's DP1200 or SA-100 DRO units to provide accurate and reliable measurements even in harsh environments.
