  • Page 9: Milltronics Mfa 4P Overview

    Milltronics MFA 4p Overview Milltronics MFA 4p is a highly sensitive, single setpoint motion sensor alarm unit, used with MSP and XPP probes. The probe detects an increase or decrease in the speed of rotating, reciprocating, or conveying equipment and sends the information to the MFA 4p. The MFA 4p works with a pre-amplifier which can be internal to the motion sensing probe or remote from the motion sensing probe.
