Draw-wire sensor

Hi, I'm looking for a linear displacement draw-wire, but I cannot seem to find any for purchase online. Does anyone have any links as to where to look? Been googling for a good hour, and all I can find is heavy industrial-draw wires.

I need one that has a range between 600 cm - 1 m. Thanks!

    Hi...I hadn't heard of draw wire sensors until reading your post, but it seems they are no more than a pot or rotary encoder connected to a draw wire.
    Why not use a rotary encoder yourself instead of a pot on the axle of your awning as you had considered? The optical ones by Avago/Broadcom are nice.
