Measuring Wheel Systems
Capture linear movements rotationallyMeasuring wheel systems from Kübler are the ideal solution for reliable speed, position and distance measurement in applications with linear movements. These are recorded rotationally via the measuring wheel with attached encoder directly on the surface of the material to be measured and converted into linear data.
The robust MWE61 measuring wheel system offers maximum spring travel at maximum contact force to compensate for tolerances perpendicular to the transport movement of the material to be measured.

With flexible mounting options: vertical, horizontal or overhead. Encoder can be mounted on the spring arm in 120° increments.
Wide range of encoders
Incremental Sendix rotary encoder with a max. resolution of up to 36,000 pulses/revolution as well as absolute rotary encoders for different communication interfaces such as IO-Link or Profinet for integration in Industry 4.0 concepts.
Suitable measuring wheels for all measuring surfaces
Circumference 300 mm or 12" - Measuring wheel lining available with O-ring or double O-ring, smooth or knurled plastic, cross-knurled surface and knobs.
Contact pressure up to max. 40 N
With continuously adjustable preload. To compensate for tolerances, the integrated spring ensures a working range of the measuring wheel up to a maximum of 150 mm perpendicular to the measuring surface.
Measuring wheel in different surfaces: cross knurls, knobs, plastic smooth or ribbed and natural rubber smoothMeasuring wheels for measuring the length of products in movement, e.g. in the paper, metal, textile, wood or plastic industry. Different wheel surfaces to meet the requirements of the various surfaces of the product to be measured – different circumferences, designed for use with Kübler encoders, available for metric and imperial systems. For evaluation, you can rely on a multitude of counters and displays from our Codix portfolio.
O-RingSpare part for corresponding measuring wheels with circumference 200 mm, 300 mm, 6" and 12".
Pulley and toothed beltThe pulley with the toothed belt, combined with a rotary encoder, results in a flexible length measurement set for measuring positions and speeds. The complete system is easy to mount and compensates for unevenness or mounting tolerances within the application.
Rack and pinionMeasuring system with mobile encoder holder, mounted on springs, (with rack and pinion) for an optimum contact pressure and protection of the encoder shaft.
Components suited optimally to each other. One rotation of the pinion corresponds to a movement of 50 mm.
Encoder spring arm for incremental encoders KIS50, 5000 and 5805 as well as for absolute encoders M58, F58 and 58The MWE60 encoder spring arm in combination with an encoder and a measuring wheel is the ideal solution for reliable speed, position and distance measurement in applications with linear movements. An integrated spring ensures the contact pressure of the measuring wheel on the measuring surface required for reliable measured value acquisition. The desired contact pressure is individually adjustable.
