  • MC3A

The MC3A is a compact, six-axis transducer with threaded inserts on its top surface and through holes on its bottom surface that act as attachment points. The body of the load cell is manufactured from a high-strength aluminum alloy with an anodized finish to protect the exterior from corrosion. Elastomeric 0-ring seals provide internal protection of the strain gages and wiring from industrial environments and moisture exposure.
