Do you need to find force sensors? As the name would imply, this is a device used to measure force. They are often called force transducers, they convert any sort of physical force, whether it is mechanical or another type of force, and convert it into an electric output which in most instances may be read on a meter attached to the transducer. They are used in a wide range of industries in science for everything from quality control to research.
You may have several options when searching for a force sensor. Some of the things to consider include the application of the tool, usability and how easy the measurements are to read, and of course the accuracy of the reading. Different types of force may require different sensors and accuracy can vary and different sensors may measure to a smaller unit of force for very specific readings. Price varies quite a bit from one machine to another and depending on the vendor.
Going over a number of options when choosing a sensor is a good idea. Business.com provides links to vendors who may have the transducer you may be looking for.
