Piezoresistive-based force sensors provide reliable and repeatable performance

The Honeywell FMA Series, available now from TTI Europe, are piezoresistive-based force sensors providing a ratiometric digital output for reading force over the specified full-scale force span and temperature range. These devices are fully calibrated and temperature compensated for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects, and nonlinearity using an onboard ASIC. Direct mechanical coupling affords for easy interface with the sensor, coupling with tubing, membrane or a plunger, giving repeatable performance and a reliable mechanical interface to the application.

All products are designed and produced according to ISO 9001 standards. These products give a more stable output directly proportional to the force applied to the mechanically-coupled sphere.

The series is available with pocket tape and reel packaging.

Typical application fields include medical – infusion pumps, ambulatory pumps, enteral feeding pumps, kidney dialysis machines; and industrial – load and compression sensing, touch panels, switch replacement, robotic equipment, weight measurement, and force/grip measuring equipment.
