Cable displacement sensor – Serie CD 50


  • CD50 sensors are cable displacement sensors. They are used to measure (in absolute or in incremental mode) the displacement of a mobile object from its datum.
  • Injection moulding machines.
  • Forging machines and bending machines.
  • Material testing machines.


A linear CD50 works according to the principle of a thread taut between a mobile element and a fixed element, fitted with a return spring drum. The drum then converts the linear displacement into an angle displacement. The shaft of the drum is fitted with a potentiometer, and operates an incremental encoder or an absolute encoder.
