The MSA is a subminiature load button capable of measuring between 5 and 1,000 pounds. With subminiature dimensions, including diameters as small as 9.6mm, the MSA is easily incorporated into systems having limited space.

The MSA provides low deflection and a high-frequency response to achieve non-linearity and hysteresis of 0.50% full scale, respectively. The spherical radius on the integrated load button minimizes the effects of off-axis loading. This unit is also temperature compensated from -10° to +40°C to provide reliable results in the midst of thermal gradients. These units are environmentally sealed for protection against most industrial environments. When space is limited and performance is required, the MSA is a solid choice.
