The FSR 406 is a single-zone Force Sensing Resistor® optimized to use human touch to control devices for use in automotive electronics, medical systems, and industrial and robotics applications, among many others. FSRs are two-wire, robust polymer thick film (PTF) sensors that exhibit a decrease in resistance with increase in force applied to the surface of the sensor. The FSR 406 is laid out in a square configuration with a 34 mm2 active area and is available in four connection options.
- 34 mm2 active area
- 83 mm length
- Sensing range from 0.2N to 20N
- Ultrathin form factor
- Easily customizable
