This episode of Tech Specs is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.
Honeywell MicroForce FMA Series
Honeywell's MicroForce FMA series are piezoresistive-based force sensors in a tiny surface mount package.
The sensors are offered with full-scale force spans of 5, 15, or 25 newtons and they are fully calibrated and temperature compensated for all errors, providing a plus or minus 2 percent full scale span accuracy. The sensor has a stainless sphere that can easily interface with tubing, membranes, or plungers and delivers enhanced repeatability.
The FMA series outputs readings with 12-bit resolution and can easily interface to a host controller with a SPI- or I2C-compatible digital output, with multiple I2C addresses available to place multiple sensors on the same bus.
- Small form factor: 5mm x 5mm
- Full scale span: 5N, 15N, 25N
- Fully calibrated and temperature compensated over a temperature range of 5°C to 50°C
- Accuracy: ±2%FSS typical
- Stable, stainless steel sphere: easy interfacing, enhanced repeatability
- Digital output: 12-bit, SPI- or I2C compatible interface
