The Force Sensor Resistor is a flexible and thin pressure-sensitive device used to detect and measure applied force or pressure. This specific variant has a diameter of 0.5 inch (14.7mm). When force is applied to the sensor, its resistance changes proportionally, allowing for force quantification. It is commonly used in applications such as touch-sensitive devices, robotics, medical instruments, and human-machine interfaces. The sensor's compact size and high sensitivity make it suitable for various projects requiring accurate force sensing capabilities.

  • Specification

    • Diameter: 0.5 inch (14.7mm)
    • Sensing Area: Circular sensing area in the center of the sensor
    • Sensitivity: Changes in resistance based on applied force
    • Resistance Range: Specified resistance range, typically in ohms
    • Response Time: Time taken by the sensor to register force changes
    • Dimensions: Varies depending on the model.


    • Power Supply: Connect the VCC pin of the sensor to the positive supply voltage (typically 3.3V to 5V) of your microcontroller or development board.
    • Ground: Connect the GND pin of the sensor to the ground (0V) of your system.
    • Signal Output: Connect the signal output pin of the sensor to an analog input pin of your microcontroller or ADC module.
    • Pull-down Resistor (Optional): In some cases, it may be necessary to connect a pull-down resistor between the signal output pin and ground to ensure proper voltage levels when the sensor is not pressed.
    • Calibration: Calibrate the sensor based on the expected force range and desired sensitivity. This may involve mapping the sensor readings to known force values.
    • Read Sensor Data: In your microcontroller code, read the analog input from the sensor to obtain force or pressure values.
    • Interpretation: Convert the analog reading to meaningful force values using the calibration data.
    • Action or Display: Utilize the force data to trigger actions, control devices, or display force-related information.
