description

Shunt Mode force sensors are the most frequently used design. They are constructed in two layers of flexible polymer. One layer is printed with a proprietary force-sensing ink and the other with conductive ink printed with interdigitating electrodes. The two substrates are then positioned facing each other and adhered using a spacer adhesive in the middle. The inter-digitating electrodes can be designed in various configurations depending on the application including, but not limited to: various patterns to influence sensitivity, various conductors including silver, copper, carbon and blends, or on a printed circuit board (PCB).

When a force is applied to the device, the shunt or shorting circuit is complete. The more force applied, the more conductive the output.
