SparkFun will be closed on Monday, May 30th, for Memorial Day. We will resume normal business hours at 9am (MT) on Tuesday, May 31st. Orders placed after 2pm (MT) on Friday May 27th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 31st. From all of us at SparkFun, we wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
This is a medium compression force sensor that offers normalized zero and span for interchangeability and is thermally compensated for changes in those with respect to temperature.
This unit handles 25 lbf (111 N).
It uses MEAS’ proprietary microfused technology, which employs micromachined silicon piezo resistive strain gages fused with high temperature glass to a stainless steel substrate.
Microfused technology eliminates age-sensitive organic epoxies used in traditional load cell designs, so it's got an excellent long term life span!
This unit measures direct force and is therefore not subject to lead-die fatigue failure common with similar units containing a pressure capsule embedded within a silicone gel-filled cavity.
Operating at very low strains, Microfused technology provides an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, and high over-range capabilities.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
