Custom Pressure Sensors For Robotic Applications

Market: Industrial | Product Line: Pressure Sensors


This sensor is used in a hydraulic actuator. A hydraulic actuator consists of a cylinder or fluid motor that uses hydraulic power to facilitate mechanical operation. Multiple pressure and force sensors are needed on a closed loop feedback.

Customer Challenge:

Custom small sensor that is easily mountable, with the purpose of measuring tension and compression while remaining resistant to any side loads.

SMD Sensor Solution:

Strain Measurement Devices provided the customer with a customized B354 hydraulic pressure sensor because of it’s small size. Designed with additional features like a unique force range of 1KN. This pressure sensor features a Wheatstone bridge and a thin-film strain gauge, creating high long term stability and providing extremely low power consumption.
