String (Draw Wire) Potentiometers
MT3A – Position Sensors
The MT3A is the solution for high-acceleration test applications in potentially wet environments. Just like the MT2A, the MT3A comes in 4 different full-stroke ranges, has a high-tension heavy-duty measuring cable designed for the demands of flight and automotive crash tests and comes with an easy to use 2-axis 360° rotation mounting bracket for installation in hard to fit areas. For extreme high impact applications, the MT3A is now available with a rugged all aluminum sensor cover!
