WPE-530 Force Sensing Potentiometer Ring (FSP) - 36mm Active Diameter

Wikon's WPE-530 Force Sensing Ring is a low cost, high-feature sensor for intuitive control and navigation. It functions simultaneously as both a single finger position and variable force sensor. WPE-530 is easy to integrate, high resolution, low-power, and ideal for a wide range of applications & markets. Interfacing is simple via a host processor without the need for a dedicated MCU.

Additionally, the WPE-530 FSP is dynamically reconfigurable in software, perhaps acting as a set of predefined analogue or digital buttons in one mode and a positional "scroll-wheel" in another. Maximum flexibility for minimal investment.

WPE-530 can be used for evaluation purposes or deployed in your final application. Intelligent design incorporates a "dead-front" graphics layer which includes a shine-through window for active or passive rear illumination if required.

Wikon offers a full custom design service enabling customers to create their own unique FSP, defining key parameters such as device footprint, cover material, interconnect and illumination options. We can also offer FSP arrays, and combine with other sensor types as needed. Contact us directly to discuss your custom FSP requirements.
