Established in 1999, WayCon Positionsmesstechnik has designed and manufactured precision position and distance sensors. With its headquarters located in Taufkirchen near Munich and a branch in Brühl near Cologne, WayCon sells its position and distance measurement products over 20 countries. Applied Measurement Australia Pty Ltd is the Australian supplier, distributing these highly accurate sensors for applications across all industries including automotive, automation, aerospace, appliances, civil and construction, chemical and process engineering, marine, mechanical, medical, sports, rail and transportation, oil and gas etc.
This range, more commonly known as “string pots” consists of low cost, compact and accurate sensors used to measure position or change in position. These contact based draw wire sensors are relatively maintenance free and quick and easy to assemble so that they can be used for all applications.
These non-contact based, highly precision sensors offer high resolution measuring distance, route and position. Using advanced electronics in conjunction with the triangulation or phase shift method, these laser sensors are able to calculate the exact distance to the measurement object.
This range of sensors is relatively inexpensive combining simple design with high precision to measure distance and position. These linear potentiometers use a voltage divider via a hybrid layer of plastic and are available up to a protection class of IP68. Furthermore, these come in a variety of designs and mountings options.
Mangetostrictive transducers within this range are used in automation, level measurements and in hydraulic cylinders at pressures up to 350 bar. These sensors are contact free and wear-free extending the life of the sensors.
these contact free sensors measure distance to the measurement object – regardless of material and color. Ultrasonic sensors are used for level measurement as well as profiling.
These sensors are based on the capacitive measurement principle offering contact free measurement of distance to conductive targets with extreme precision and accuracy. These can be applied in extreme environments such as nuclear radiation, high vacuum etc.
Capacitive sensors use high class electronics, on or multi-channel and cost effective electronics KL such that reliable results are attained.
WayCon offers a variety of electronic displays that can be equipped with a variety of output cards for further data processing. Depending on the model, functions include resetting to zero, setting limits, linearisation and scaling etc.
This class of sensors measures the change in angle in rotating parts with high precision.
The PMX-24 model features galvantic isolation, integrated cable break detection, or configurable outputs and converts potentiometric sensor signals into proportional analog output signals.
WayCon offers a variety of sensors such as draw wire, magnetostrictive and linear potentiometers, designed to be installed inside the hydraulic cylinders (pressurized area). Additionally, the MOP series is designed for pneumatic cylinders to be installed outside the cylinder – measuring on magnetic pistons without contact.
