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 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.
