Sensors for Force Measurement

Standard FlexiForce® sensors are ultra-thin and flexible printed circuits, which can be easily integrated into force measurement applications.

FlexiForce® sensors are utilized in many applications to:
Detect and measure a relative change in force or applied load
Detect and measure the rate of change in force
Identify force thresholds and trigger appropriate action
Detect contact and/or touch

FlexiForce Sensor Definition

FlexiForce: (Noun) Pronunciation: flex e fôrs

1. a: a versatile, durable piezoresistive force sensor that can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes; b: a piezoresistive sensing device in which resistance is inversely proportional to applied force;

2. a customizable, economical force measurement tool that is easily integrated into OEM products;

3. a: a patented, ultra-thin (0.008 in.), flexible printed circuit that senses contact force; b: a force and load sensor that is available in three different force ranges, suiting a variety of applications for research and product development/testing
