The A401 is a larger 2-pin sensor from Tekscan with a round sensing area of 1 inch (2,54 cm). The sensor has a force range of 0 - 25 lb. The dynamic range of this mini force sensor can be modified to 0-1 lb and 0 - 7000 lb by changing the drive voltage and adjusting the resistance of the feedback resistor.
FlexiForce sensors are compared to other force sensors more linear, have less drift, have better rehabilitation, have wider range, and are less sensing area dependent.
- Force Sensor Length: 56.9 mm
- Sensing Size (Diameter/Width): 25.4 mm
- Standard Force: 111 N, 30,000 N
- Temperature Range: -40 °C to 60 °C
