Force Sensitive Resistor

This is a small force sensitive resistor. It has a 0.16″ (4 mm) diameter active sensing area. This FSR will vary its resistance depending on how much pressure is being applied to the sensing area. The harder the force, the lower the resistance. When no pressure is being applied to the FSR, its resistance will be larger than 1MΩ, with full pressure applied the resistance will be 2.5kΩ.

FlexiForce™ force sensors can measure force between almost any two surfaces and are durable enough to stand up to most environments. These sensors are available off-the-shelf for prototyping or can be customized to meet the specific needs of your product design and application requirements.

  • Relative change in force or applied load
  • Rate of change in force
  • Force thresholds and trigger appropriate action
  • Contact and/or touch

Description

Description: This is a force sensitive resistor with a square, 1.75×1.5″, sensing area. This FSR will vary its resistance depending on how much pressure is being applied to the sensing area. The harder the force, the lower the resistance. When no pressure is being applied to the FSR its resistance will be larger than 1MΩ. This FSR can sense applied force anywhere in the range of 100g-10kg.

Two pins extend from the bottom of the sensor with 0.1″ pitch making it bread board friendly. There is a peel-and-stick rubber backing on the other side of the sensing area to mount the FSR.

These sensors are simple to set up and great for sensing pressure, but they aren’t incredibly accurate. Use them to sense if it’s being squeezed, but you may not want to use it as a scale.
