description

TPE-508 is a high-performance Shunt Mode Force Sensing Resistor (FSR). The device may be cut to a desired length by the user.

FSR's are constructed in two layers of flexible polymer. One layer is printed with a proprietary force-sensing ink, the other with silver interdigitating electrodes. The two substrates are then positioned facing each other and adhered using a spacer adhesive around the circumference. 

When a force is applied to the device the layers come into contact and a circuit is completed. As more force is applied resistance drops and more current flows.
