The SingleTact electronics board for ultra-thin capacitive force sensors converts the sensor capacitance changes into digital and analog output. In analog output mode, only three connections are required (power, ground and output). Alternatively, we provide I2C for interfacing a microcontroller such as an Arduino.
The single-element capacitive sensor accurately and reliably quantifies forces and delivers incredible performance. It is not only the world’s first capacitive miniature force sensor but it also delivers superior sensitivity and repeatability over resistive force sensors.
Only 0.35mm thick, these enable you to collect force and pressure measurements between two surfaces in contact through open source sample code for Arduino and Windows PC application or using a simple Analog 3-wire interface for immediate DAQ integration.
