FlexiForce Sensor

The active sensing area of the FlexiForce is a 0.375 inch diameter circle at the end of the sensor. The conductive leads are easy to connect to a breadboard or through-hole area. The Flexiforce has an ideal output for A/D conversion - 0 V is no force and 4.2 V is 100 lbs. The kit includes a 220 ohm resistor, 0.1 uF and 0.01 uF capacitors and the Flexiforce sensor.
Operating temperature range:

15 to 140 ºF (-9 to +60 ºC)
