FlexiForce Pressure Sensor - 1lb.

Description Attachments

The FlexiForce Pressure Sensor - 1lb is a piezoresistive force sensor by Tekscan that changes its resistance based on the amount of pressure applied. The sensor's resistance decreases as the pressure increases, starting from infinite resistance at no pressure and dropping to approximately 300k when pressed lightly. The sensor is thin and flexible, but it's important to note that flexing does not affect the resistance; only pressure applied to the round area at the end of the sensor will cause a change. This makes it ideal for use as a presence sensor, weight sensor, or pressure sensor for impact testing.

The sensor measures approximately 21.59cm in length and comes with a reinforced connector that is spaced at 2.54mm intervals, making it compatible with breadboards. This design enhances its versatility and ease of use in various applications.

The FlexiForce Pressure Sensor - 1lb is one of three versions of this sensor, each with a different pressure range. This specific model can accurately measure pressures ranging from 0 to 1lb.

With the FlexiForce Pressure Sensor - 1lb, you can create a wide range of applications. From detecting a person's presence by sensing their weight, to measuring the impact in collision tests, this sensor offers a reliable and flexible solution for pressure sensing needs.
