OHMITE’s new FSR Series resistive force sensor

April 15th, 2019
Were you aware that Ohmite has applied their expertise in resistive technology to sensors.  The Ohmite FSR Series (Force-Sensing Resistors) exhibit the unique characteristic of dynamic resistance related to the amount of applied force. In general applications, the more force applied to the surface of the sensor, the lower the resistance. The resistance change is inversely proportional to the applied force. Force Sensing Resistors offer many benefits for HMI ( Human Machine Interface) sensing in a wide range of markets and applications versus mechanical switching or capacitive sensing. These include but are not limited to:
FSR Series

• Small, thin and light
• Largely immune to EMI and water events
• Low power
• False touch rejection
• Cost effective
• Highly Durable (>10M activations typical)
