World’s first capacitive miniature force sensor

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Pressure Profile Systems has unveiled the SingleTact, a high performance miniature capacitive force sensor that is claimed to deliver superior sensitivity and repeatability over resistive force sensors.

SingleTact is an ultra-thin, single-element capacitive sensor that is said to accurately and reliably quantify forces and delivers incredible performance including less than 1% repeatability errors in addition to being more than three times the sensitivity of resistive force sensors.

The device is designed to help engineers to develop innovative products and projects where precise and reliable force measurements are required using open source software and firmware. A complete turnkey solution is available to engineers wishing to collect force data either in analogue or digital configuration, while the versatile SingleTact interface board, which allows analogue or digital I2C integration, can be customised for individual applications. A choice of six sensor configurations is provided including 8 and 15mm diameter sensors and a variety of force ranges from 100g to 45kg.
