Displacement measurement in hydraulic diving platforms
Height-adjustable diving platforms are used in competitive sports to set individual jump heights or identical heights for synchronised divers. Draw-wire displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon measure the height of the tower and ensure that the tower is in the exact position. The sensor detects the retraction and extension of the ladder, which is recessed in the floor of the swimming pool hall. If the tower is moved, the ladder and the strut with the measuring wire move in the same way.
Due to their large measuring range, the robust aluminium profile housing and durable design with wear-free encoders, the draw-wire sensors of the wireSENSOR series also provide reliable measurement results.
