    I have a Sick wire draw absolute encoder  (Part # BCG13-I1BM0599) The given information that I have is as follows:

    – Wire Draw Absolute Encoder (wire draw mechanism and encoder together) – .001 resolution

    – Encoder Total Resolution – 1073741824 counts

    – Counts per revolution – 262144

    – Max pull out length – 5.2 meters

    I need to scale this down to a span of 0-150 inches. If you have any advice, I would very much appreciate it as I am at my wits end. Thanks.

    5.2 meters in 204.724 inches

    150/204.724 * 1073741824 counts = 786,723,948.34 counts = 150 inches
