FSR: Force Sensitive Resistors for Standard and Custom Forms

Many force measurement applications call for an FSR (force sensitive resistor) that is ultra-thin, accurate, cost-effective, and customizable.

Tekscan's FSR sensor, the FlexiForce™ Sensor, is a paper-thin, flexible sensor which solves a number of important load sensing issues for test and design engineers, including:

  • Cost: Off-the-shelf FSR sensors can be ordered online in packs of four or eight to satisfy low-volume requirements.   High-volume discounts are available for standard and custom FSR sensors.
  • Turnaround Time: Tekscan's standard FSRs (like the FlexiForce model A201) typically ship within 1-2 business days of order
  • Customization Capabilities:Tekscan has created many custom force sensor (FSR) designs in response to the unique needs of our customers. We have made FSR sensing areas as small as 2 mm x 2 mm and as large as 18 in x 18 in. We can also manufacture FSR sensors with unique forms such as multi-point and trimmable areas.
  • Accuracy: Tekscan's FSR sensors typically exhibit a linearity of ±3%. View complete force sensor specifications.
