Product Overview

Operate on the principle that the resistance of silicon implanted piezoresistors will increase when the resistors flex under any applied force. The plunger concentrates force to the silicon sensing element with the amount of resistance changing in proportion to the amount of force applied.

Product series include FSS, FSA, FSG, TBF and 1865.
