The new wireSENSOR MK-88 extends the Micro-Epsilon portfolio of ultra-compact draw wire sensors. A low-cost alternative to the aluminium-based standard industrial range, the MK series excels in its compact design, its glass fibre reinforced plastic construction and its particularly low price for large quantities. The wireSENSOR MK88, in particular, offers an outstanding balance of sensor size and measuring range. Wire lengths of 2.3m, 3.5m or 5m open the door to applications that used to be exclusive to larger and more expensive sensors. Sensors with potentiometer-based interfaces are available (4...20mA, 0-10V, 0-1 kW). For OEM projects, all common incremental and absolute digital interfaces or field busses may be used.
