Force sensor made more robust
The sensor is suitable for stylus pens and other input devices.
The device has a breaking load of 55 newtons, and detects a force of less than 0.01 newtons. It has an endurance of more than one million operations. The linearity is less than 2 percent deviation from full scale and the unit is 2.0mm by 1.6mm by 0.66mm.
Besides its use in input devices, the sensor is suitable for industrial machines handling precision equipment and a range of diverse applications, especially on the grip parts of robot arms for precision grip force adjustments.
