The RFU sensors offer precision force sensing in miniature SMT housings. Based on proven silicon sensing technology, the RFU Series utilises a specialised piezoresistive micro-machined silicon-sensing element. The low power Wheatstone Bridge sensing circuit provides stable linear mV outputs over the 1500 gram force range.
Typical applications include medical equipment control (e.g. kidney dialysis machines, drug delivery systems or medical instrumentation), ultra-low displacement sensing in robotic end-effectors (e.g. pinch force control), wire bonding equipment and high-precision force sensing such as variable tension control or material testing.
