      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
