With its paper-thin construction, flexibility and force
measurement ability, the Thin Force sensor can measure force between almost
any two surfaces, up to 2 kg.
To ensure the most accuracy, a small disc (included) can be placed directly
on the sensing pad before applying force to the disc. This will ensure that
all the force is applied directly to the sensing pad and not to the surrounding
Force Sensing Resistors (FSRs) are very thin, robust, polymer thick film (PTF)
devices that decrease in resistance when increased pressure is applied to
the surface of the sensor. FSRs are not a load cell or strain gauge devices
though they have many similar properties.
They are more appropriate for qualitative rather than precision measurements.
Comes Packaged with:
3002 ¡V 60cm Sensor Cable
2 Rubber discs (Diameter: 12.7mmm; Height 2m)
If you need more accuracy or you want to measure forces over 2kg, have a look at the 1120 - FlexiForce Adapter.
