When compared to a strain gauge, Senso is

many times more sensitive and faster in

sensing changes in force or pressure.


For example, it can be used to create a push

switch that also measures the force applied to

the switch.


The power consumption of DIARC® Senso is

very low – less than 0.1% of that of a strain

gauge. This gives the coating a wide range of

potential applications and enables long ser-

vice life in, for example, IoT applications.


The resistivity change of Senso is several

times higher than that of a normal strain

gauge. This enables accurate measurements

also without separate signal amplification.
