Introducing the FSS-SMT Series, Honeywell’s smallest force sensor. This low profile surface mount device allows for automated assembly on a printed circuit board, 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 which gives them the flexibility to customize and integrate the sensor into other system electronics. The FSS-SMT Series Force Sensor is designed to provide precise and reliable force sensing performance in a compact commercial-grade package. The sensor incorporates Honeywell sensing technology that uses a specialized piezoresistive micromachined silicon sensing element.
The new FSS-SMT Series force sensor is:
Small: FSS-SMT Series is Honeywell’s smallest force sensor, taking up less space on the PCB.
SMT device: Previously, customers had to manually bend the leads to use a Honeywell force sensor as an SMT; the new FSS-SMT allows customer to eliminate this process step.
Cost-effective and flexible: Cost-conscious customers will be attracted to the FSS-SMT because it provides all four points of the Wheatstone bridge sensing element which gives them the flexibility to customize and integrate the sensor into other system electronics.
Stable: Stainless steel ball provides excellent mechanical stability.
Robust: The use of innovative elastomeric technology and engineered molded plastics results in load excitation capacities of 44 N over-force, making the sensor more robust because it can better handle an increase in load.
