The A101 is our smallest sensor optimized for high volume manufacturing and ideal for embedding into products. The 2-pin sensors are currently our smallest standard sensor.

The sensors can measure up to 10 lbs. The dynamic range of this mini force sensor can be modified by changing the drive voltage and adjusting the resistance of the feedback resistor

Applications:
  1. Testing and Measurement Equipment
  2. Embedded Electronics
  3. OEM Development Kit
  4. Consumer Electronics
  5. Multimeter

How to Adjust the Force Range:

In order to measure higher forces, apply a lower drive voltage (-0.5 V, -0.25 V, etc.) and reduce the resistance of the feedback resistor (1kΩ min.) To measure lower forces, apply a higher drive voltage and increase the resistance of the feedback resistor.
