This is a small force sensitive resistor. It has a 0.16" (4 mm) diameter active sensing area. This FSR from Interlink Electronics will vary its resistance depending on how much pressure is being applied to the sensing area. The harder the forcethe lower the resistance. When no pressure is being applied to the FSRits resistance will be larger than 1MΩwith full pressure applied the resistance will be 2.5kΩ.
Two pins extend from the bottom of the sensor with 0.1" pitch making it bread board friendly.
These sensors are simple to set up and great for sensing pressurebut they aren’t incredibly accurate. Use them to sense if it’s being squeezedbut you may not want to use it as a scale.
