This sensor's diminutive size makes it great for all sorts of small spaces. The flex sensor changes its resistance as its flexed, so you can easily create an analog signal to connect to your microcontroller. We recommend using our Voltage Divider to easily create that signal. The connector is .1"/2.5mm spaced, so it will work with standard breadboards. We recommend that you reinforce the base of the sensor when...

The pairs of metal strips are spaced out 2.5 inches from each other for the length of the mat. When someone steps on the mat their weight presses the two metal strips together creating a closed contact. All the strips are connected down both sides of the mat creating one large switch. The individual strips can be cut apart to create individual switches and the mat itself...

The design is super simple and completely open source, but saves tinkerers from having to breadboard a potentiometer of their own. A 2 position terminal block and 0.1" spaced header are available for sensor input, a 3 pos right angle header breaks out Analog output, 5v input, and Gnd. Each sensor includes necessary...

Note: The sensor sold here is actually a Sharp IR GP2Y0A21YK0F. It has the same distance range as a GP2D12 and very similar analog output properties. The GP2D12 is extremely difficult to source currently, so these sensors provide a great alternative.

By pressing down on various parts of the strip, the resistance linearly changes from 100Ohms to 10,000Ohms allowing the user to very accurately calculate the relative position on the strip. Can be used as an accurate positional indicator for CNC head positioning, variable user input (volume level input for example), straight user input (multiple button areas translate to given resistance levels), and many other applications. Unit comes with adhesive...

The pairs of metal strips are spaced out 2.5 inches from each other for the length of the mat. When someone steps on the mat their weight presses the two metal strips together creating a closed contact. All the strips are connected down both sides of the mat creating one large switch. The individual strips can be cut apart to create individual switches and the mat itself...

The ADXL345 is a small, thin, low power, 3-axis accelerometer with high resolution (13-bit) measurement at up to ±16 g. Digital output data is formatted as 16-bit twos complement and is accessible through either a SPI (3- or 4-wire) or I2C digital interface.  The ADXL345 is well suited to measures the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from...
