Honeywell's FSS SMT Series force sensors are designed to be one of the most reliable force sensors available as illustrated by 20 million Mean Cycles to Failure (MCTF) rating. This low profile Surface Mount Technology (SMT) sensor allows for automated assembly on printed circuit boards, often helping the customer to reduce assembly costs.

The FSS SMT Series force sensor is designed provide precise and reliable force sensing performance in a compact commercial-grade package. The sensor incorporates Honewyell sensing technology that uses a specialized piezoresistive micro-machined silicon sensing element.

The sensor package incorporates patented modular construction. The use of innovative elastometric technology and engineered molded plastics results in load excitation capacities of 44 N over-force.
