Force & Load Sensors

Methode designs and manufactures force and load sensing solutions that encompass magnetoelastic, capacitive, and eddy current technologies. Our portfolio addresses diverse applications in agricultural, construction and automotive environments.

 

Our Force & Load Sensor Solutions

Designed for many industries, our customizable Force and Load solutions utilize magnetoelastic, capacitive, and eddy current technologies to reliably measure exerted forces or material loads in applications including occupant detection, brake force, continuous conveyors, forklifts, agriculture wagons, equipment buckets, and others.

Load Control Sensing

Force and load sensors can accurately measure the forklift load during operation, with the measurement unaffected by load location.

RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
Magnetoelastic

OPTIONS & VALUES

Used to indicate overloads to the operator, force and load sensors can combine with linear position measurement in the same package.

Continuous Weigh Scales

Force and load sensors measure the material load on a continuous conveyor belt and prevent overloads beyond operating range.

RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
Magnetoelastic

COMMON SPECIFICATIONS

Providing <1 ms response to load measurement, force and load sensors for continuous conveyors include closed loop control feedback for go and no-go quality with tare function.

Material Load Sensing

For agriculture wagons, force and load sensors measure the material load being carried.

RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
Magnetoelastic

COMMON SPECIFICATIONS

Force and load sensors indicate overloads to the operator, preventing in-field failures.

Brake Caliper Sensor

Methode's force and load sensors are used to measure the deformation of the brake caliper.

RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
Eddy Current

COMMON SPECIFICATIONS

The brake caliper sensor compare the force exerted by the driver against the actual force exerted on the caliper.

Low Force Measurement

Force and load sensors for automotive applications measure force using a defined dielectric between two moving electrodes.

RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
Eddy Current

COMMON SPECIFICATIONS

Determining the travel and stiffness of the dielectric, force and load sensors easily calculate the force, particularly for a surface load.
