Meterdrive linear incremental measuring system features simplified wiring and connections and more robust circuitry. In operation, Meterdrive's stainless-steel perforated tape either passes by an opto-electronic, fixed head detector, or is suspended between two points with the detector head moving. Measurement is available to a resolution of either 0.1 or 1 mm, and can be performed at speeds of up to 10m/sec. Maximum tape length is 250m when using a fixed tape, or 10m when using the spring-loaded unit, which operates like a tape measure.
