OptoForce utilizes patented OptoForce sensor technology to design and manufacture 3D optical force sensors. Unlike their strain gage counterparts, the optical 3D, silicon based force sensors designed and manufactured by OptoForce use one surface to measure the deformation along three axes (x, y and z).
The photodiodes within the OptoForce sensors measure the amount of light reflect reflected emitted by the LED. These measured values are then compared so that the acting forces are reconstructed precisely including the direction.
The OptoForce sensors are more robust because the deforming surfaces are physically separated from the sensing element.
The 6 – axis sensors measure the lateral forces as well as the torques around the X, Y and Z vectors. Additionally, a variety of the 3 – axis sensors can be used to construct the 6 – axis force/ torque sensors.
