Perfect for Prototyping

Tekscan offers a wide range of off-the-shelf FlexiForce sensors for design engineers considering the technology for their embedded design. Most of our customers start with standard sensors early during their prototyping/proof-of-concept stage.

  • Affordable: To keep costs manageable, these sensors are made available in four- and eight-packs for purchase from our online store.
  • Diverse capabilities: Sensors available in high-temperature (up to 200°C (400°F)) formats, and also Enhanced Stability Series (ESS) formats for high-humidity operating conditions.
  • Flexible to your design's needs: All sensors can be trimmed to whatever size or shape your application requires. Read our best practices for trimming FlexiForce sensors.

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.

The "Best Practices in Mechanical Integration" guide 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
  • Methods for mounting the sensor, and more!

The "Best Practices in Electrical Integration" guide provides key recommendations for circuitry of your embedded design. The guide covers:

  • Circuit selection
  • Sensitivity adjustment processes
  • Calibration procedure, 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.
