The P-DMS polymer strain gage is described as a compact and cost-effective component for measuring pressure. Based on patented sensor paste technology and printed onto a PCB board, it is extremely sensitive to slight pressures. A small deformation to the paste generates a change of its electrical resistance generating an analog signal to enable measurement, input and control to a wide range of applications. Requiring no moving parts, the strain gage is directly printed on the application’s control board, which means it does not need to be connected via wires. This enables compact designs, as well as eliminating the failure points of wire failure and corrosion. It also eliminates electrical sparking as the key contacts come together. Additionally, the P-DMS is available in wide variety of customized sizes and shapes. Datasheets are available for download at http://www.hoffmann-krippner.com/polymer-strain-gage.html
