Mystery sensor
« on: June 08, 2010, 06:49:06 AM »
Hello

I've been going through some old lab equipment and found a few things neither I nor my colleagues can identify, does anyone have any idea what this is?









I suspect it's some sort of force sensor, but I'm not sure.

Thanks

Dan

hi,

i've seen one of these before, its an Awesomeness sensor. Stick it to your forehead to find your reading.
you should be able to run it with an Atmega8 using the $50 robot circuit.  :)

Try to do some measurements on the connector, while you heat up the sensor, change humidity, preassure, light etc. to see what it reacts on.
