June 9, 2015 – Hoffmann Krippner introduces SensoInk and SensoFoil Ink and Foil based sensors that can be printed as potentiometers, resistors, switches or keyboard contacts on circuit boards or electronic components.
SensoInk is a sensing solution based on printed polymer pastes. SensoInk is a 5V analog solution with low power requirements and operates at 5V. By using polymer thick film technology, SensoInk is extremely flexible, and can be printed as potentiometers, resistors, switches or keyboard contacts on circuit boards or electronic components. It enables device developers to quickly and easily implement individual specifications without sacrificing quality. By using SensoInk, there are no negative electromagnetic effects (Electromagnetic compatibility). Only two components are required for signal transformation: a printed potentiometer track on a carrier material (e.g. FR4 or PET foil) and a conductive wiper.
Sensofoil thin-film membrane potentiometers are membrane position sensors. SensoFoil offers a flat design of 0.5 mm to 1 mm, repeat accuracy of 1mm to 10µm, easy to achieve redundancy and problem-free device integration. The standard linear Sensofoil is available in lengths of 50 mm up to 500 mm, 40mm wide rotary, and custom sizes and shapes. Sensofoil is available in PET (ultra-thin), Magnet (contactless – long lifetime) or Hybrid technology (extended lifetime and temperature range).
