Design engineers instinctively love solving puzzles. The process of integrating components and technologies to create a unique and innovative device can be a stimulating, albeit challenging experience. We at Tekscan certainly understand this “thrill-of-the-hunt” feeling – many of us have engineering backgrounds.

While many of us could happily spend our days tinkering away in the design labs, the companies we work for do not necessarily share these same sentiments. Minimizing the overall project time of designing and embedding technology into a product or device – from prototyping to production implementation – is critically important in all types of industries. Setting yourself for success starts with gaining a clear understanding of the embedded technology you are working with to limit risks and ensure success.

That’s why we’re pleased to introduce 3 Critical Resources to help ensure a successful integration of a FlexiForce™ force-sensitive resistor.

The "Best Practices in Mechanical Integration" guide provides key recommendations to consider during the prototyping phase of your OEM project, including:

  • Applying load concentrators to ensure even loading
  • Recommendations to minimize shear force and preserve sensor sensitivity
  • Methods for mounting the sensor, and more!

The "Best Practices in Electrical Integration" guide provides key recommendations for circuitry of your embedded design. The guide covers:

  • Circuit selection
  • Sensitivity adjustment processes
  • Calibration procedure, and more!
The "FlexiForce Integration Guide" picks up where the Best Practice guides leave off, providing total guidance throughout the integration process. This guide is the next best thing to having a Tekscan Applications Engineer at your side.
