The FN7180-3 is designed specifically to measure friction between two elements. Used mainly for automotive application, the sensor controls the efficiency of windshield soaps, elastomeric surfaces, oils and fluids under several conditions.

The sensor has small cross effects. Its high resolution and global accuracy allowed finest customer tests. The FN7180 series can also be adjusted in a specific temperature range, and then monitor evolution of the criteria at different temperature steps.

With many years of experience as a designer and a manufacturer of sensors, Measurement Specialties from TE Connectivity, Inc. often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and
testing environments.
