Force Sensing Resistors in Three Individual Designs

The Ohmite FSR Series (Force-Sensing Resistors) exhibit the unique characteristic of dynamic resistance related to the amount of applied force. In general applications, the more force applied to the surface of the sensor, the lower the resistance. The resistance change is inversely proportional to the applied force. Force sensing resistors offer many benefits for HMI sensing in a wide range of markets and applications versus mechanical switching or capacitive sensing.

Force Sensing Resistors Features & Benefits

  • Three individual designs (square, circle, and strip)
  • Terminal options (bare, solder tab, and connector)
  • Connector equivalent to Nicomatic 14106-12
  • Each sensor can operate up to 5 KG of force
  • Small, thin and light
  • Largely immune to EMI and water events
  • Low power
  • False touch rejection
  • Cost-effective
  • Highly Durable (>10M activations typical)
