String (Draw Wire) Potentiometers
MT2A – Position Sensor
The MT2A is a member of our family of rugged, accurate miniature cable-extension position transducers designed specifically for test applications. One of the major benefits to this sensor its 2-axis 360° rotating mounting bracket to allow for fast and simple installation in any direction. The MT2A comes in 4 different measuring ranges: 0-3”, 0-9”, 0-15” and 0-30” and features a highly-tensioned heavy-duty measuring cable designed for the high-acceleration demands encountered in flight testing and automotive crash tests. For extreme impact applications, a new rugged all aluminum sensor cover is now available!
