MicroForce FMA Series is amplified and temperature compensated, small form factor: 5 mm x 5 mm [0.20 in x 0.20 in], with digital output (I2C/SPI), simplifies new designs, overforce: 3X force range [5N to 25N], supply voltage: 3.3 Vdc typ. or 5.0 Vdc typ.
The FMA Series are piezoresistive-based force sensors offering a digital output for reading force over the specified full scale force span and temperature range. They are fully calibrated and temperature compensated for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects, and nonlinearity using an on-board Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). Direct mechanical coupling allows for easy interface with the sensor, coupling with tubing, membrane or a plunger, providing repeatable performance and a reliable mechanical interface to the application. All products are designed and manufactured according to ISO 9001 standards.
These products offer a more stable output which is directly proportional to the force applied to the mechanically-coupled sphere. The FMA Series is available with pocket tape and reel packaging.
VALUE TO CUSTOMERS
The FMA Series is designed to meet the customer's need for a compensated, amplified force sensor which provides digital outputs, a variety of force sensing ranges, a small, cost-effective format, and enhanced durability and accuracy. The flexible design provides multiple standard configurations over a wide operating temperature range.
