VPG Sensors

- 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.
