force sensors

Leadership, in full force. Whether it's critical applications such as IV drips or dialysis, or serious engineering like robotic end-effectors, Honeywell offers a broad line of force sensor options. Honeywell force sensors also deliver built-in stability and flexibility, to provide enhanced performance in most applications.

These force sensors:

  • Measure the addition or backup of force 
  • Resistance of silicon-implanted piezoresistors increase when flexed under applied force
  • Concentrate force directly to silicon-sensing element through stainless steel plunger
  • Change in circuit resistance results in corresponding mV output level
