Description Attachments

The Piezo Vibration Sensor - Small Vertical is a highly sensitive, low-cost vibration sensor from Sparkfun, specifically the Minisense 100 model by Measurement Specialties. This cantilever-type sensor is loaded with a mass, enhancing its sensitivity at low frequencies. It's designed to detect vibrations and 'tap' inputs from a user, making it versatile and practical for various applications. When the sensor's film moves back and forth, it generates a small AC and a large voltage of up to +/-90V. By using a simple resistor, this voltage can be brought down to ADC levels. This sensor can also be used for impact sensing or as a flexible switch.

The sensor comes with solder pins for vertical mounting, adding to its convenience and ease of use. Its unique features include a flexible PVDF Piezo Polymer Film, a wide dynamic range, and a laminated structure for higher voltage output. Moreover, it comes with breadboard-friendly leads, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a user-friendly, high-performance sensor.

Its benefits are numerous. The sensor's high sensitivity at low frequencies makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, including detecting vibrations in machinery, monitoring structural integrity, and even user-interface applications such as detecting 'tap' inputs. The sensor's flexibility, represented by its use as an impact sensor or flexible switch, adds to its versatility. The breadboard-friendly leads make it easy to integrate into your projects, making it a practical choice for both beginners and experienced users.

The Piezo Vibration Sensor - Small Vertical is a unique product in the Sparkfun range. Its combination of high sensitivity, versatility, and user-friendly features make it an excellent choice for a wide variety of applications. Whether you're a hobbyist, a professional engineer, or somewhere in between, this sensor offers high-quality performance at an affordable price.
