Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR)

FSR(Force Sensitive Resistor) detects the force, weight applied to its surface area. The 1/2" diameter round part is sensitive area. The resistance varies according to the force/weight applied to the surface of the sensor. When no pressure is being applied to the FSR its resistance will be larger than 1 mega-ohm.This FSR can sense applied force in the range of 100g-10kg.
