EASY plug Thin-film Pressure Sensor

Introduction

This EASY plug pressure sensor adopts the flexible Nano pressure-sensitive material with an ultra-thin film pad. It has the functions of water-proof and pressure detection. The force sensors are ultra-thin and flexible printed circuits, which can be easily integrated into force measurement applications.
The harder you press, the lower the sensor's resistance.
When the sensor detects the outside pressure, the resistance of sensor will make a change. So we can use the circuit to convert the pressure signal that senses pressure change into the corresponding electric signal output.
In this way, we can know the conditions of pressure changes by detecting the signal changes.
You can connect the sensor to EASY plug Control board for communication using only a RJ11 cable.

Upload the Code

Copy and paste below code to Arduino IDE and upload.

int s_pin = A0;
void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(s_pin,INPUT);
}
void loop() 
{
  Serial.println(analogRead(s_pin));
  delay(500);
}


What You Should See

After uploading the code, open the serial monitor in the Arduino IDE and set the baud rate to 9600. When press tightly the sensor’s pad, you should see the value become larger. So the sensor works normally.
