Seamlessly Integrate FlexiForce Sensors with Characterization and Prototyping Kits

Engineers  and designers integrating FlexiForce sensors into OEM products often have questions about how the sensor will perform in their specific application. How will the sensor react to different electronics and interface materials? How will it perform in the final design? Our application engineers have many years of experience supporting OEM customers through the sensor integration process, and have developed this set of tools to help you advance more seamlessly through each phase of FlexiForce sensor integration, from proof of concept testing and prototyping through field testing and commercialization. 

Integration Kit Benefits:

  • Ease of use; begin obtaining force feedback data in minutes
  • Eliminate time needed for developing circuits
  • Signal conditioning that allows the ability to adjust or modify dynamic range

FlexiForce Integration Guides

Minimizing the overall project time of designing and embedding technology into a product or device – from prototyping to production implementation – is critically important in all types of industries. Setting yourself for success starts with gaining a clear understanding of the embedded technology you are working with to limit risks and ensure success.

That’s why we’re pleased to introduce 3 Critical Resources to help ensure a successful integration of a FlexiForce™ force-sensitive resistor.

6 phases of force sensor integration
"The 6 Phases of Force Sensor Integration" eBook shares a technical design story of an engineering team that utilized FlexiForce sensors as an embedded component to measure relative force feedback in a smart, wearable medical device. These pages address important decisions the team faced in all 6 of these critical design phases, sharing examples of how they leveraged useful off-the-shelf kits and resources to make their design process as efficient as possible.

The "Best Practices for Sensor Integration" guides provides key recommendations to consider during the prototyping phase of your OEM project, including:

  • Applying load concentrators to ensure even loading
  • Recommendations to minimize shear force and preserve sensor sensitivity
  • Circuit selection, sensitivity adjustment, calibration, and more!

The "FlexiForce Integration Guide" picks up where the Best Practice guides leave off, providing total guidance throughout the integration process. This guide is the next best thing to having a Tekscan Applications Engineer at your side.
