- VPG Sensors produces sensors based on resistive foil technology, and sensor-based systems. We provide vertically integrated products and solutions for multiple growing markets in the areas of stress measurement, industrial weighing, and manufacturing process control.
As a spin-off from Vishay Intertechnology, we have a decades-long track record of innovation in foil precision resistors, current sensors, and strain gages, which has served as a foundation for our more recent expansion into strain gage instrumentation, load cells and transducers, load cell modules, and complete systems for process control and on-board weighing.
FRSM Series of Z-1 Foil Chip Resistors
Vishay resistors are constructed of solid alloy, making them insensitive to destabilizing factors.
CSM3637Z Current-Sensing Resistors
Vishay's current-sensing resistor has improved resistance stability and features a low thermal electromotive force critical for DC applications.
Vishay's ultra-high precision, Z-Foil audio resistor is designed to improve sound quality by reducing audible distortion.
