The TPE-521 Force Sensing Potentiometer (FSP) provides maximum flexibility for minimal investment. The TPE-521 can be wired to report both location and force input simultaneously. Additionally, the TPE-521 FSP is dynamically reconfigurable in software, perhaps acting as a set of predefined analogue or digital buttons in one mode and a positional "slider" in another.
The TPE-521 is the short sensing zone version of our standard force sensing potentiometer. It features a sensing zone that is 20mm wide and 59mm long.
TPE-521 can be used for evaluation purposes or deployed in your final application. Intelligent design incorporates a "dead-front" graphics layer which includes a shine-through window for active or passive rear illumination if required.
