The Phidget Vibration Sensor is a piezo deflection sensor for the Phidget 8/8/8.
This sensor buffers a piezoelectric transducer. As the transducer is displaced from the mechanical neutral axis, bending creates strain within the piezoelectric element and generates voltages.
If the assembly is supported by its mounting points and left to vibrate “in free space” the device will behave as a form of vibration sensor. The sensing element should not be treated as a flexible switch, and is not intended to be bent.
Comes packaged with a 60cm Sensor Cable. This sensor connects to an Analog Input on the PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 or on PhidgetTextLCDs.
