Wanted: Impact sensor in roll form for Pick & Place SMT usage... | 19 June, 2001

Hello everyone. I'm trying to locate (if it exists) an impact sensor (which would activate if hit or jarred) on some sort of roll form with 2 leads which could be easily placed and soldered through automation. If anyone knows of a supplier, I would very much appreciate it - we may need a large order once we finish the prototyping stage.

Thanks, - Ben

I'm sorry, I can�t image on your words.

A couple of years ago, we had a rash of DOA shipments to a customer. We thought someone could be drop-kicking the packaged product down the stairs. So, we shipped with BIG red labels and impact indicators on the boxes that said "Hey fine person, if you�re damaging our product, we going to catch you!!". Interestingly, our DOA problems ended. We bought these labels and impact indicators from: Shockwatch 7929 Brookriver Dr Dallas TX 75247 800.527.9497 x103 Fax 214-638-4512 http://www.shockwatch.com baa@shockwatch.com

Another style of impact indicator is provided by: Impact-O-Graph, Chatsworth Data Corp 20710 Lassen St Chatsworth, CA 91311 818-341-3000 Fax 3002 iog@chatsworthdata.com http://www.chatsworthdata.com/impact-o-graph/index.htm

Odds are that these companies don�t supply what you�re seeking, but they might be kind and knowledgeable in a range of issues and may be able to steer you towards something more to your liking.
