This video discusses the use of a flexible PCB to simplify wiring and decrease production costs for a torque sensor. The flex-circuit was designed and is produced by a sub-contractor in France. The torque sensor uses two double shear strain gages, one nickel resistor for span compensation, one adjustable resistor for zero balance and the flex-circuit component.
This video discusses the design of a pedometer sensor. The application is the measurement of force applied by the foot on the brake pedal of a car. This measurement is an additional test conducted during the brake control testing. The pedometer sensor uses two double linear Advanced Sensors strain gages in Karma, one bonded adjustable resistor for zero balance, and one terminal bonded on the sensor body.
This video discusses a low capacity torque sensor. The application is the measurement of screw tightening torque on an automotive assembly line. This torque sensor uses two double shear strain gages, one nickel resistor and one terminal bonded on the sensor body.
