Description Attachments

The Minisense 100 from Measurement Specialties is a compact, low-cost vibration sensor that is perfect for detecting vibration and 'tap' inputs from a user. It's a cantilever-type sensor that comes with a mass to offer high sensitivity, especially at low frequencies. The sensor is designed to generate a small AC and large voltage (up to +/-90V) when the film moves back and forth. To bring the voltage down to ADC levels, a simple resistor will suffice. This versatile sensor can also be used for impact sensing or as a flexible switch.

The Minisense 100 is equipped with machine pins for horizontal mounting, which makes integration into your projects a breeze. It's a small horizontal sensor, but don't let its size fool you. It's packed with features that make it a reliable and versatile tool for any project.

This sensor has been used in various applications, including musical inputs. Its sensitivity to vibration makes it an excellent tool for creating interactive musical projects. With a little creativity, the possibilities are endless.

Key features of the Minisense 100 include a flexible PVDF Piezo Polymer Film, a wide dynamic range, and a laminated design for higher voltage output. The sensor also comes with breadboard-friendly leads, making it easy to incorporate into your electronic projects.

For more detailed information about the Minisense 100, please refer to the datasheet and technical manual provided by Sparkfun.
