Piezo Vibration Sensor Interfacing With Arduino

HARDWARE REQUIRED

  1. ARDUINO UNO
  2. Piezo Vibration Sensor

Piezo Vibration Sensor

Description: This basic piezo sensor from Measurement Specialties is often used for flex, touch, vibration and shock measurements. A small AC and large voltage (up to +/-90V) is created when the film moves back and forth. A simple resistor should get the voltage down to ADC levels. Can also be used for impact sensing or a flexible switch.

Comes with solderable crimp pins.

Features:

  • Flexible PVDF Piezo Polymer Film
  • Wide dynamic range
  • Laminated for higher voltage output
  • 0.1″ breadboard friendly leads
