LOAD SENSORS WORK AT HIGH TEMPERATURE

High-Temperature FlexiForce force and load sensors have been tested at temperatures as high as 420°F. They target demanding applications such as engine gaskets, injection molding, laminates, and other high-temperature processing applications. New A201 Models are trimmable. Users can customize the length of the sensors themselves, or they can be factory trimmed at lengths of 2, 4, and 6 in. for an additional charge. The A201 force sensors are terminated with a male square pin instead of the standard berg connector. This is a much thinner connector and therefore less intrusive.
