  • It doesn’t do very well at little to no load, but you can pre-load it. If there is already 0.5lb on it, it will read 0.5-0.55 lb very accurately. Just subtract the 0.5lb to get the reading you’re interested in.

  • Hey all, I made a guide on setting this up and calibrating it with an op amp and Arduino. The data is accurate, and it gives about 12 gram resolution on this sensor. Seraphdrone.com/blog/flexiforce-pressure-sensor-with-arduino

  • Hey all, I made a guide on setting this up and calibrating it with an op amp and Arduino. The data is accurate, and it gives about 50 gram resolution on this sensor. Seraphdrone.com/blog/flexiforce-pressure-sensor-with-arduino

  • This is really great information; everything I was looking for from an unbiased source. Really appreciate it!

  • This is amazing! I feel like I’ve been in the dark by not knowing about these!

  • The interns just didn’t quite understand why “getting high” wasn’t legal before

  • I have 8 loops of EL wire on this, which is 8 positive wires and 8 ground wires. I see on the EL Escudo Dos schematic that all of the EL grounds are tied to the inverter ground. Could I tie all of the EL wire grounds together and run one wire down to the inverter ground? It’d cut the number of wires down from 16 to 9, which would help with my tight space requirements. Thanks in advance for any help!

  • I’m wondering if your math is a bit off here - when drawing the same amount of current, you’re now using 1.7V * I less power than the original 5V * I, which is 34%, not 66% less. Of course you could have just meant to say “consume 66% as much power.”

  • Thanks for this post! I had concerns since it wasn’t explicitly stated in the product description and the El Escudo original had issues with this.

No public wish lists :(
