Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
Tekscan, Inc., leading manufacturer of force and pressure measurement sensors, is pleased to announce the release of the new High-Temp FlexiForce® Sensor (Model # HT201), measuring forces in environments as hot as 200° Celsius (400° Fahrenheit).
The ultra-thin, highly-linear (typically +/-1.2%) High-Temp FlexiForce sensors are ideal for non-intrusive force measurement in a variety of processing applications, including injection molding, heat sealing, and heat sink applications. Industries that will benefit from these high-temperature force measurements include automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, printing, food and beverage processing, and many more.
Specifically, the sensors are used to:
•Detect and measure a relative change in force or applied load
•Detect and measure the rate of change in force
•Identify force thresholds and trigger appropriate action
•Detect contact and/or touch
The HT201 sensor is available in two force ranges, Low and High:
HT201-L (0-30 lb)
HT201-H (0-100 lb)
