Our sensors.
The intelligent, electronic skin.

Machines, whether portable or stationary on the floor, require a sense of touch to intelligently work together with humans. Ergonomics, wear comfort, and intuitive design simplify the interaction.

Capacitive silicone force sensor

Product characteristics

SXTSC1

The force-sensitive silicone sensor. It operates according to the capacitive operating principle and can measure both touch and compressive force. It can be three-dimensionally shaped, thereby enabling ergonomic interaction with surfaces.

  • Force: 1…10 N
  • Stroke: up to 1.0 mm
  • Durability: > 0.5 million cycles
  • Temperature range: -40…+85°C
  • Applications: Touch surfaces, prosthesis, exoskeletons, grippers, robotics

 

Project-specific adaptations to the characteristics can be done.

Benefits

  • New, ergonomic design options thanks to real three-dimensional shaping
  • 2-in-1 solution can detect touch and compressive force
  • Simplified design and reduction of manufacturing costs thanks to elastic design for damping and tolerance compensation
  • Skin compatibility
  • Robustness, shock, and impact resistance ensure high durability

Use case

Prevent unintended actuation

The SXTSC1 pressure sensor can measure the force applied on a soft or hard surface. By doing so, it can be ensured that an actuation is performed only when the user has intentionally touched the surface.

Use case

Prostheses and exoskeletons

The soft SXTSC1 force sensor can detect local pressure points. Together with simple electronics, several sensors can be used to control the direction of the prostheses and gloves. The SXTSC1 adapts itself to the body's shape, is robust, and easy to integrate. We offer assistance both with the electronics and with the sensor design.
