Tape sensor

The WB100M tape sensor, developed for offshore oil-drilling rigs and outdoor applications, is highly resistant to shock and operational to IP68/69K in seawater. Part of the company’s Positape family, the sensor’s fully encapsulated electronics ensure no moisture penetrates the critical areas whereas water is allowed to freely flow through the mechanical areas with no effect due to the use of materials specifically selected to work well in a saltwater environment.

The WB100M comes in lengths of 2,000 up to 10,000 mm and a wide range of analog or digital outputs including CAN SAE J1939. The sensor’s linearity is rated up to ±0.05% full scale.
