FlexiForce Sensor Kit - 25lbs, 30056

£39.64 £33.03

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 Flexiforce has an ideal output for A/D conversion - 0V is no force and 4.2V 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.
