World's Smallest String Pot Available from Measurement Specialties Measuring 0.74 square inches, M150 offers full stroke range of 0"-1.5"

HAMPTON, Va., Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), an expert in sensor design and manufacturing, offers the world's smallest string pot measuring just 0.74" x 0.74" x 0.38" with a full stroke range of 0" to 1.5". The M150, formerly a Celesco product, accurately detects and measures linear position and displacement.

Measurement Specialties' M150 string pot is ideal for use in a wide variety of space-critical test environments including structural, aerospace and automotive testing.  Other applications benefitting from the miniature cable extension transducer include motor sport and high-tech medical devices.

The miniature linear position sensor, comprised of a measuring cable, spool, spring and rotational sensor, fits into extremely confined spaces and can be installed within minutes.  This state-of-the-art transducer does not require perfectly parallel cable alignment to work efficiently or effectively.

A precision, high-cycle conductive plastic potentiometer delivers a high-linearity voltage position feedback signal in proportion to the cable's linear position, by simply being mounted to a fixed surface and attaching the stainless steel cable to the moveable object being tested.  The electrical output is high-level, DC analog and works with virtually any data acquisition system
