Force Sensors

Honeywell provides a variety of force sensor options to fit any application

Image of Honeywell Sensing Force SensorsHoneywell Sensing's force sensors deliver built-in stability and flexibility, to provide enhanced performance in most applications. Whether using them for critical applications such as IV drips and dialysis or serious engineering like robotic end-effectors, Honeywell offers a broad line of force sensor options.

Honeywell offers various coupling mechanism force sensors for an interface which is best suited for the application: mechanical coupled (FSG, FSS, and FSS-SMT), hybrid (FSA), and gel coupled (1865 and TBF).

The various force ranges and options (compensated, uncompensated, amplified sensors, unamplified sensors, and various sizes and price points) provide customer flexibility to select the most appropriate package for their application.

Features

  • Measures the addition or backup of force
  • Resistance of silicon-implanted piezoresistors increases when flexed under applied force
  • Concentrates force directly to silicon-sensing element
  • Change in circuit resistance results in corresponding output level
