Next-Gen Force Sensors Forge Forward Into Automotive, Industrial, And IoT Spaces

Tailored for a wide range of applications, including automotive, IoT, and industrial buttons, the NextInput FT-5388 and FT-5588 force sensors enable designs that are gapless and an order of magnitude more reliable than mechanical switches. The FT-5000 Series promises to simplify mechanical integration and increases system longevity by eliminating elastomers used to absorb mechanical tolerances. For more info, visit
