This is a piezoresistive force sensor. The harder you press, the lower the sensor’s resistance. Pressing hard, the resistance changes from infinite to ~50k. The sensor itself is thin and flexible, but the resistance does not change while being flexed. Resistance changes only when pressure is applied to the round area at the end of the sensor. Used as a presence sensor (someone standing), weight sensor, pressure sensor (impact testing), etc.
The overall length is about 2.25". The sensor comes with a 0.1" spaced, reinforced, breadboard friendly connector. This sensor ranges from 0 to 25lbs of ..
If you’ve been playing with RFID long enough, you know you can never have enough RFID tags! We’ve retail packaged a stack of five of our 125kHz RFID tags for when your RFID-protected secret clubhouse starts attracting more members (or whatever it is you do with RFID tags…)
These tags each have a unique 32-bit ID code and can’t be re-programmed. You can read the codes on the tags with a 125kHz RFID reader, such as the ID-12 or the ID-20 which can be found in the related items below.
Note: This version comes with blank, unbranded RFID cards.

This is the same product as the HMC5883L Breakout Board. The difference is this version comes in fancy clamshell packaging meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap.
This breakout board makes it easier to use Honeywell’s HMC5883L, a 3-axis digital compass. Communication with the HMC5883L is simple and all done through an I2C interface. There is no on-board regulator, so a regulated voltage of 2.16-3.6VDC should be supplied.
The breakout board includes the HMC5883L s..
This is the same product as the Maxbotix LV-EZ1. The difference is this version comes in fancy clamshell packaging meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap.
This is the fantastically easy to use sensor from Maxbotix. We are extremely pleased with the size, quality, and ease of use of this little range finder. The serial interface is a bit odd (it’s RS232 instead of standard TTL), but the PWM and Analog interfaces will allow any micro to listen easily enough. The sens..
