Force Sensor, measures up to 3 kilograms. 24 Inch cable included.
With no force the resistance of this sensor is over 100K Ohm, as the force increases the resistance falls to 1K Ohm. This resistance is in a voltage divider arrangement with a 7.5K Ohm resistor.
Board Dimensions: 2.8 x 3.0 cm
Mounting Holes: 2.0 x 2.3 cm
