FUTEK is proud to introduce its patent-pending QLA414 Nano platform, the smallest force-sensing solution of its kind. The 4mm x 5mm Nanosensor (roughly the size of a match head), opens up a world of possibilities for highly innovative industries such as advanced automation and robotic surgery, where sensor size is critical to support the requirements of next-generation applications.
The Nanosensor offering includes M1 threaded double-sided mounting provisions, 1000 Ohm full-bridge side load compensated instrumentation, laser-welded construction, non-active interconnect, and environmental protection. It allows for high accuracy tension and compression force measurement in 5lb and 10lb capacities with ultra-low deflection, and high natural frequency response. Additionally, miniaturized sensors as small as 3mm x 4mm with measurement capabilities up to 50lb, are also available upon request for OEM applications, including IP67 and autoclavable solutions for the medical industry.
FUTEK Nanosensors features a unique, patent-pending thru-hole design that allows for not only M1 thread mounting, but also slide or weld-on installation over the tube, wire, or shaft, making the Nano platform very modular in terms of integration options.
