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:
FlexiForce FSR Sensor
Cost: a pack of four off-the-shelf FSR sensors can be ordered online from Tekscan for just $65. Quantity discounts are available for standard and custom FSR sensors.
Turnaround Time: Tekscan's standard FSR (FlexiForce model A201) typically ships 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 ±5%. View complete force sensor specifications.
