Overview

The FS20 series low compression force sensor offers normalized zero and span for interchangeability and is thermally compensated for changes in zero and span with respect to temperature.
fs20 compression force sensor

The FS20 compression force sensor incorporates TE proprietary sensor technology which employs micromachined silicon piezoresistive strain gages fused with high temperature glass to a high performance stainless steel substrate. Microfused™ technology eliminates age-sensitive organic epoxies used in traditional load cell designs providing excellent long term span and zero stability. The FS20 measures direct force and is therefore not subject to lead-die fatigue failure common with competitive designs which use a pressure capsule embedded within a silicone gel-filled cavity. Operating at very low strains, TE technology provides an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, and high over-range capabilities. The FS20 brings your OEM product to life whether you need thousands or millions of load cells annually. Although the standard model is ideal for a wide range of applications, our dedicated design team at our Load Cell Engineering Center is ready to provide you with custom designs for your OEM applications. Please refer to the FC22 and FC23 for higher force applications.
