A force sensitive resistor with a square, 1.75x1.5", 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 1 Megaohm. 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.

  • I have recieved a sensor far less accurate then the one in the picture. It is a different sensor than in the picture. I will ask for a refund or another sensor
