Force Sensor Helps Reduce Assembly Costs
Mon, 05/17/2010 - 7:46am
Honeywell’s smallest force sensor, the FSS-SMT Series, is a low profile surface mount device that allows for automated assembly on a printed circuit board (PCB), often eliminating hand soldering and helping to reduce assembly costs. Cost-conscious customers will be attracted to the FSS-SMT Series because it provides all four points of the Wheatstone bridge sensing element, allowing for flexibility to customize and integrate the sensor into other system electronics. The series has a 20 million Mean Cycle To Failure (MCTF) at 25 °C [77 °F] rating that allows for consistent output over time, helping to reduce repairs or replacements. Low deflection (30 microns typical at full scale) and fast response help reduce measurement errors.
