  • The flexible sensor has the characteristics of flexible ultra-thin, ultra-low power consumption and extreme speed response, etc.
  • Small size, this flexible pressure sensor is based on new nanometer pressure-sensitive materials supplemented by ultra-thin film substrate.
  • This pressure sensor has the characteristic of high stability, high consistency.
  • Highly sensitive flexible nanometer materials can realize highly sensitive detection of pressure. When sensor detects outside pressure, the resistance of sensor will change.
  • Pressure signal can be converted into a corresponding electrical signal output using simple circuit.

Square shaped Force Sensor

This Force Sensor has a sensing area of 1.75 x 1.5″, sensing area and it will vary its resistance depending on how much pressure is being applied to the sensing area. The harder the force, the lower the resistance. When no pressure is being applied to the FSR its resistance will be larger than 1MΩ.

This Pressure Sensor can sense force anywhere in the range of 100g-10kg and can be easily integrated with Microcontrollers, Arduino Boards, Raspberry Pi, etc. using Analog to Digital converters (ADC).  

Applications:

  • Pressure-sensitive touch user interface
  • Tactile sensor for robotic appendages
  • Drum pad for an electronic instrument

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a Force Sensor?

  • A force sensor is a passive electronic component whose resistance decreases as the force applied to the active surface increases, allowing you to create sensors that can detect force or pressure. The force sensor has a  1.75 x 1.5-inch sensing area and changes resistance depending on the amount of pressure applied to the sensing area. The stronger the force, the less resistance. When the FSR is unpressurized, its resistance exceeds 1 MΩ. It is capable of sensing forces from 100g to 10kg, this pressure sensor can be easily integrated into microcontrollers, Arduino boards, Raspberry Pi, and more. Use an analog-to-digital converter (ADC).

2. What are the applications of Force Sensors?

  • A force sensor used to measure pressure, force, strain, and stress. There are often internal strain gauges bonded to the metal structure that reacts to even the slightest compression, changing resistance and feedback on those results.
    Some Common Applications of Force Sensors:
    • Weighting Scales: One of the most common applications for force sensors is scales. There are many types of scales. There are countless scales, platform scales, container scales, platform scales, vehicle scales, belt scales, and more. Force sensors are used to provide reliable results when weighing various materials.
    • On-board Weighing: On-board weighing involves weighing the contents of a heavy or industrial vehicle while it is "on board" the vehicle. This ensures that the vehicle carries loads with maximum capacity. Neither too little load is too inefficient, nor too much capacity is unsafe. 
    • Commercial Applications: Some applications use force sensors that may be touched. A supermarket self-service checkout scale includes a force sensor that weighs scanned purchases. Airport luggage scales are another force sensor application you may have come across.  
    • Medical Applications: Force sensors are used in the medical industry. They are used in fluid monitoring applications, dialysis machines, endoscopic surgery, physiotherapy machines, orthopedics, and MRI machines. Force sensors for medical applications require medical approval. OEM-load cells are used for his OEM applications in both high and low-force environments.
