SparkFun SEN-09673 Force Sensitive Resistor – Small

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 force, the lower the resistance. When no pressure is being applied to the FSR, its resistance will be larger than 1MO, with full pressure applied the resistance will be 2.5kO.

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 pressure, but they aren’t incredibly accurate. Use them to sense if it’s being squeezed, but you may not want to use it as a scale.


  • Overall length: 1.75″
  • Overall width: 0.28″
  • Sensing area: 0.3″


  • Actuation Force as low as 2 grams
  • Wide force sensitivity range 0.1N – 10N

    We have used these sensors in an experiment where we needed a small thin sensor to measure contact pressures. As long as you calibrate them before use, we found they do a good job.
