Trumpeted as the market’s smallest, the HSFPAR Series force sensor employs MEMS technology to back up that statement. The sensor was developed by applying to a semiconductor strain gauge original MEMS and packaging technologies built up over the years. It measures 2 mm x 1.6 mm x 0.66 mm and can detect stress as low as 0.01N. The HSFPAR Series is also available as a unit type with a FPC. Other features include a life of more than 1 million cycles.
