    What is Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR)?

    FSR is a special type of sensor which exhibits a decrease in resistance with an increase in the force applied to the active sensing surface. The force sensing resistor is a polymer sheet, with both electrically conducting and non-conducting particles present on this sensing film. If force is applied to a surface of the sensing film, the particles touch the conducting electrodes and causes the resistance of the film to change. This change in resistance can be measured, and used to sense a step on a dance pad. 

    The FSR 406 is a single-zone Force Sensing Resistor® optimized to use human touch to control devices for use in automotive electronics, medical systems, and industrial and robotics applications, among many others. FSRs are two-wire, robust polymer thick film (PTF) sensors that exhibit a decrease in resistance with increase in force applied to the surface of the sensor. The FSR 406 is laid out in a square configuration with a 34 mm2 active area and is available in two connection options.


      The FSR Sensor is a mod and it will take some time to install and set up with your pad. This is not a "plug and play" sensor.
