PT5A Industrial series

PT5A Industrial series



The PT5A potentiometric cable-extension transducer uses a unique thermoplastic cable that has virtually an infinite fatigue life.

This cable, known as V62, has properties that are superior for high cycle and rugged applications.  Like Celesco’s other transducers, the PT5A installs in minutes, functions properly without perfectly parallel alignment, and fits easily into small areas.  The PT5A offers additional installation flexibility since its cable exit can be rotated relative to the mounting surface, providing four different cable exit orientations.
