Evaluating the durability and repeatability of an embedded force sensing technology is a time-consuming and expensive process for OEMs. Sensor durability is often a key characteristic design engineers consider when evaluating force sensing technologies, especially when the application may require upwards of a million actuations over its time in use.
However, when working with a thin sensor technology, like FlexiForce touch sensors, in an application with a high-volume of force actuations, some may assume that the sensor performance may change over use.
This whitepaper shares the findings from two different durability experiments conducted Tekscan applications engineers:
- FlexiForce sensor durability assessment following one million force actuations under extreme testing parameters
- FlexiForce sensor recovery evaluation following 10,000 actuations
