The MC3A is a rugged and compact 6 degree-of-freedom (6DOF) multi-axis transducer, ideal for a wide variety of applications. The 3 x 3 x 3 in. transducer features threaded inserts and through-holes that act as attachment points. Elastomeric O-ring seals provide internal protection of the strain gages and wiring from industrial environments and moisture exposure.

The MC3A is available in 4 capacities ranging from a 100 lb to 1000 lb vertical load capacity (see Specifications Tables). Common applications for this transducer include research and development in robotics, ergonomics, production processes, biomechanics, and dynamics. A waterproof version of this sensor, the SF3, is available for use in tow tanks, ocean engineering, and other underwater applications.

The body of the load cell is manufactured from a high-strength aluminum alloy to withstand harsh environments, and an anodized finish to protect the exterior from corrosion.
