Compression Sensors

FS10 Miniature Load Cell

The FS10 is a surface-mounted miniature compression load cell that offers exceptional price-to-performance in a robust sensor package. Optimized for embedded force sensing applications from wearable medical devices to durable appliances and robotics applications.

The FS10 incorporates TE's high-reliability Microfused® technology and is offered in ranges from 500 grams to 3000 grams (5N to 30N). Microfused technology provides excellent span and zero stability, outstanding cycle life, superior resolution, high over-range capabilities, and an unamplified span sensitivity of 25mV/V.

The FS10 utilizes a high-resistance pin-molded plastic housing to connect with the strain gauge signal directly (the inside PCB is eliminated) to guarantee performance stability during a high temperature process, which means compatibility for both hand and reflow soldering.
