MTA Voltage Divider Output

MTA Voltage Divider Output

The MTA miniature cable extension transducer combines 0.4% accuracy and 50-million cycle potentiometer life into a small package that gives designers high-performance to fit in small assemblies. Measurement ranges available are 0-3″ and 0-5″.

The MTA is part of Celesco’s miniature line of cable-extension position transducers that is perfect for short-ranged testing and control applications where space is at a premium. This transducer uses a high-cycle conductive plastic potentiometer to provide a precision voltage divider feedback signal for measurement ranges of 3 or 5 inches full stroke. With an accuracy of ±0.4% and a repeatability of ±0.02%, the MTA conveniently mounts using servo-clips for easy rotational adjustment.
