Product Overview

The FSS1500NST is a low profile Force Sensor with electrically ratiometric output. The FS series sensor provide precise reliable force sensing performance in a compact commercial grade package. The sensor features a proven sensing technology that uses a specialized piezoresistive micro machined silicon sensing element. The low power, unamplified and uncompensated Wheatstone bridge circuit design provides inherently stable mV outputs over the force range. Force sensor operate on the principle that the resistance of silicon-implanted piezoresistors will increase when the resistors flex under any applied force. The sensor concentrates force from the applications, through the stainless steel ball, directly to the silicon-sensing element. The amount of resistance changes in proportion to the amount of force being applied. This change in circuit resistance results in a corresponding mV output level change.
