*Definition: A force sensor, also known as a load cell or force transducer, is a device used to measure or detect the force applied to it. It is designed to convert mechanical force into an electrical signal that can be measured or analyzed. Force sensors are used in various industries and applications where force measurement or monitoring is required. Typically, force sensors consist of a load-sensitive element that deforms under the applied force. This deformation leads to a change in some physical property, such as strain, pressure, or displacement, which is then converted into an electrical signal. The load-sensitive element can be based on different principles, including strain gauges, piezoelectric materials, or capacitive sensors.
