South Boston Manufacturer Wins Electronic Products Product-of-the-Year

Each year, Electronic Products magazine editors select the most innovative and forward-thinking new products introduced to the electronics market. South Boston sensor manufacturer Tekscan, Inc. is honored to announce that its newest sensor product, the High-Temp FlexiForce® sensor, has been chosen among thousands of products as product of the year by Electronic Products editors.

High-Temp FlexiForce sensors are unique because thin-film sensing technology is manufactured using semiconductive inks, silver, and polyester film, which historically withstand temperatures up to about 140°F. Tekscan devoted a great deal of time and resources into developing a formulation comprised of more heat-resistant material, while maintaining a paper-thin profile and highly accurate output. The result was the company's high-temp FlexiForce sensor which measures forces in environments as hot as 400°F and maintains a highly linear output (±1.2%).

Thanks to their robust configuration, their thin, lightweight profile, and their low-power requirements, High-Temp FlexiForce sensors are useful in automotive, manufacturing, and military applications to obtain force measurements between two mating surfaces. They are available off-the-shelf in a standard shape, size, and two standard force ranges. Like the standard FlexiForce sensor, they can also be customized for high-quantity OEM applications, or for R&D, Test, and Measurement applications which require a matrix configuration for pressure distribution.
