This will allow you to demonstrate the resistive nature of the sensor with a resistor/capacitor discharge-time measurement circuit; no correlations to weight are made. The resistance of the FlexiForce sensor is proportional to weight. The sensor included in the kit has a resolution of ≈ 1.6lbs. The active sensing area is a .375" diameter circle at the end of the sensor. The conductive leads are easy to connect to a breadboard or through-hole area. The Flexiforce has an ideal output for A/D conversion - 0 V is no force and 4.2 V is 25 lbs. The RCTIME command may be used with a LOOKUP table or calibration formula to execute some math to make the output useful.

This ultra-thin (0.008 in.) flexible printed circuit can be easily integrated into force measurement applications.

With the Flexiforce Sensor Kit, you can: 

  • Detect and measure a relative change in force or applied load.
  • Detect and measure the rate of change in force.
  • Identify force thresholds and trigger appropriate action.
  • Detect contact and/or touch.

Key Features:

  • 25 lbs load capacity.
  • Versatile small size.
  • Configurable accuracy.
  • Easy programming.

Application Ideas:

  • Touch Pads (i.e. VR Gloves, Joysticks).
  • Alarm Systems.
  • Airbag Force.
  • Aerospace.
  • Horn Press.
  • Robotic Grip Force.
  • Compression Moldings.
