Custom Force Sensors

  • Thin film sensor is laser welded to the deformation body for superior strength and performance
  • Extremely accurate - with the help of Finite Element Method Analysis, this sensor is able to reach accuracies from 0.2% to 1% full scale
  • Custom-designed to customer specifications and application needs, requiring less space for installation
  • Provides OEMs and end-users unsurpassed flexibility and much higher accuracy than nonconforming standard designs
  • Available in a variety of standard current and voltage output signals, with others available on request
  • Deformation body is constructed from a high grade, high quality Stainless Steel that provides exceptional durability and extended service life
  • Provides excellent performance and reliability while remaining cost effective
