Tekscan FlexiForce A401 Sensor

£95.50£171.50

FlexiForce force sensors are ultra-thin and flexible printed circuits, which can be easily integrated into force measurement applications.

The A401 has a 2-pin connector. We highly recommend you use A401 sensors with the Tekscan Quickstart Board; a finished single voltage source circuit, if you are not using your own electronics or multimeter.

This is Tekscan’s standard sensor with the largest sensing area: 25.4mm (1in.).
A401 sensors are available in one force range: 111N (0-25lb). The force ranges stated are approximations. The dynamic range of this force sensor can be modified by changing the drive voltage and adjusting the resistance of the feedback resistor.
