Flexible Displacement Sensor

Parker’s SensoNODE™ Flexible Displacement Sensors are soft, thin, conformable devices that can take accurate measurements and readings while being strained over 100% for millions of cycles. The sensors are made of a tough silicon rubber and can withstand the harshest environments from heat, cold, and shock to dust, vibration and moisture.

The SensoNODE™ Flexible Displacement Sensor integrates with Parker’s SCOUT™ software or direct wired interfaces. This allows users to connect their SensoNODE sensors to their mobile devices to receive diagnostic information. SCOUT software compiles the data and presents it in a way that makes sense to the user’s operation, allowing them to track data in real-time and also review historic trends.

Why SensoNODE Flexible Displacement Sensor?

  • Soft and comfortable
  • Rapid response
  • High accuracy, high precision
  • Ultra-high strain (up to 100%)
  • Smart digital interface
  • Pre-calibrated output
  • Temperature compensated output
  • Thin, flexible and unobtrusive


This flexible displacement sensor opens up a brand new range of measurement capabilities for numerous potential applications:

The soft, conformable nature of the SensoNODE Flexible Displacement Sensors make them well-suited for a number of medical applications, such as health care, assisted living, and elder care. Their accurate, precise motion capture capabilities make them ideal for:

  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Monitoring vital factors
  • Gauging motion
  • Furniture

The SensoNODE Flexible Displacement Sensor’s ultra-stretch and light-weight characteristics make it a perfect fit for wearables. The sensor can be placed in apparel substrates to measure performance and fitness levels while being comfortable and non-intrusive to athletes or gamers. The sensor can also be placed around body joints due to its high degree of stretch.

  • Sports
  • Training
  • Gaming

SensoNODE Flexible Displacement Sensors can be used to measure strain or vibration in machines, vehicles, production lines, plants, and facilities. They are ideal for monitoring elastomer and other high-strain devices that are subject to overload or fatigue failure, such as air and fluid handling. Other applications can include:

  • Elastomer joints and seals
  • Conveyer systems
  • Linear actuators
  • Hydraulic accumulators
  • Mechanical effectors
  • Pneumatic cylinders
