Hyperwave WPL – smart sensors built by Gefran

14 April 2021


Discover the WPL range of contactless linear position transducers with HYPERWAVE magnetostrictive technology. The absence of electrical contact on the cursor eliminates all wear and guarantees almost unlimited life.

High accuracy of the measurement with reference to the non linearity, repeatability and hysteresis. High resistance to vibrations, mechanical shocks, wide working temperature range. High performance in terms of environmental IP protection and EMC immunity, for use in a harsh industrial environment.

The WPL series with digital interface IO-Link V 1.1 is a “Smart” device specifically designed to meet the demands of the “Industry 4.0” world. In addition to the process variables (position/speed), the sensor provides auxiliary acyclic information (diagnostics/statistics), which promotes optimal machine management.

WPL also has settings and configuration functions for easy installation within the process.
