Piezoelectric and normal force sensor


Thread Starter



I would like to know if someone has references or ideas about the use of a piezoelectric force sensor in parallel or in series with a normal force sensor.

The piezoelectric force sensor can sense dynamic forces but loses its charge. On the other hand the normal force sensor can't measure small forces but keeps the static force.

My idea would be to sense very small dynamic forces while holding a large static force.

Do you think it would be possible and does someones has references on this ?

Thank you very much !
