If you are looking for high quality force sensors, you are looking for StrainSense. As a specialist in customized sensors we offer tailor made solutions next to the standard sensors. Force transducers are sensors that convert a force into a linear electrical signal. Their operation relies on measuring miniature movements in a precision metal structure using foil strain gauges (known as sensing resisitor or force sensing resistor) bonded to the surface of the metal. The structure can be build in a wide variety of forms depending on the force range and the application requirements.
There are two different types of sensor, standard mV/V traditional output, or silicon strain gauged high output versions which means the sensor can be made very stiff to offer the smallest sizes, but also fatigue ratings and very high cycle rates.
We specialise in the test and measurement and specialised OEM markets based in the United Kingdom.
