Like a digital tape measure, this 1m draw wire potentiometer measures the length of wire pulled out of it.

In complex mechanical systems, it is often very difficult to accurately measure the movement of a single part, particularly if it has several degrees of freedom. The draw wire potentiometer is a versatile solution to this very problem; it can be attached to a part using an M5 screw or fastened to the end with a zip tie, and the potentiometer itself has a pair of M5 screw threads on the back for easy installation.
