Force-Sensing Linear Potentiometer

A force-sensing linear potentiometer is both a variable force and position sensor in a single device. It is designed for single finger use so isn't multi-touch, but can be used for reporting the mean force and position of two or more touch points if desired. The electronics must multiplex between modes in order to detect the force and position function. The force circuit is normally open when the device is not loaded. When force is applied to the sensing area, an initial surface contact is made and a high resistance value displayed. As force is increased, the resistance decreases.

Potentiometers offer unique capabilities including: large resistance range, incremental or infinite resistance and Z capabilities. They are ideal for and are currently used in control panels, dashboard controls, media players and foot pedals.
