Reliable and very accurate, this ultra-thin capacitive force sensor 8 mm 10N 2.2lbs by SingleTact has a repeatability error less than 1% of FSR. The single-element capacitive sensor delivers incredible performance, accurately and reliably quantifying forces. The world's first capacitive miniature force sensor also delivers superior sensitivity and repeatability over resistive force sensors.

Only 0.35mm thick, these enable you to collect force and pressure measurements between two surfaces in contact through open source sample code for Arduino and Windows PC application or using a simple Analog 3-wire interface for immediate DAQ integration.

Note: Measuring capacitance can be challenging so we recommend that you use the capacitive force sensor electronics board to provide a convenient voltage output and a digital I2C interface.
