MP Series position transducers are for use with aircraft digital flight data recorders. A spring-loaded cable extension mechanism provides reliable position sensing. The series is available in lengths ranging from 2 to 2,000 inches with various electrical outputs including 0 to 10V, 4-20 mA, and digital. The electrical outputs are proportional to the linear position of the stainless-steel cable.
