Double sided tape is recommended. A very thin tape is preferable, so that it does not interfere with sensor performance.
SingleTact has been tested to a million cycles.
A calibrated sensor has higher accuracy and a linear output curve, however calibration data is stored on the electronics, therefore the electronics cannot be used with any other sensor. For more information, go to our SingleTact Product Selector page, select any size, any pressure range, and then click on the informational “Should I order a calibrated sensor?” button.
Yes, we can design custom sensors for you, however a minimum order value of $10,000 is required due to manufacturing costs. Please contact our sales department email@example.com to discuss your project.
Check the pin configuration. To check that the Arduino is working properly with SingleTact, follow the steps in the SingleTact User Manual, Section 4.2 (Programming the Arduino UNO with SingleTact Example). Please make sure you have followed the current steps as well:
Go to Tools –> Board –>Arduino UNO
Go to Tools –>Port –> COM(X) (Connected with Arduino)
I want to use a SingleTact sensor without the interface board. Is it possible to measure the capacitance manually without the I2C interface board?
The available SingleTact datasheet gives possible sensor connections and the expected capacitance range. For your application, you need to read the capacitance value. You need some form of analogue front-end (SingleTact electronics or equivalent) to convert capacitance to voltage or a digital output.
