Sensors are the eyes and ears of electronics, they monitor external stimuli such as sound, light, pressure, and heat, and convert them into signals for your microcontroller to process.

We've got all kinds of sensors available for your project, so make sure that you pick the correct one for your hardware. If you get stuck, be sure to reach out to us via our forum.

Take a look at some of our sensor tutorials:

Accelerometers

Accelerometers are the basis of all motion control. They allow you to sense both static and dynamic acceleration and are easy to integrate into your project.

Some important factors to take into account when buying an accelerometer for your project:

  • Sensitivity (some have variable options)
  • Resolution
  • Communication method (eg. I2C or SPI)

    The SparkFun Load Cell Amplifier is a small breakout board for the HX711 IC that allows you to easily read load cells to measure weight. By connecting the amplifier to your microcontroller you will be able to read the changes in the resistance of the load cell, and with some calibration you’ll be able to get very accurate weight measurements. This can be handy for creating your own industrial scale, process control or simple presence detection.

    SKU: SEN-09375 Brand: Sparkfun Guides (1)
    This is a force sensitive resistor with a round, 0.5" diameter, sensing area. This FSR will vary its resistance depending on how much pressure is being applied to the sensing area. The harder the force, the lower the resistance. When no pressure is being applied to the FSR its resistance will be larger than 1MΩ. This FSR can sense applied force anywhere in the range of 100g-10kg.

    The Water Flow sensor measures the rate of a liquid flowing through it. The YF-S201 water flow sensor consists of a plastic valve body, flow rotor and hall effect sensor. It is usually used at the inlet end to detect the amount of flow. When liquid flows through the sensor, a magnetic rotor will rotate and the rate of rotation will vary with the rate of flow. The hall effect sensor will then output a pulse width signal. Connect it to a microcontroller and you can monitor multiple devices such as your coffee maker, sprinkler or anything else, and control the water flow rate to suit your needs!

  2. SparkFun Soil Moisture Sensor
    SKU: SEN-13322 Brand: Sparkfun
    The SparkFun Soil Moisture Sensor is a simple breakout for measuring the moisture in soil and similar materials. The soil moisture sensor is pretty straight forward to use. The two large exposed pads function as probes for the sensor, together acting as a variable resistor. The more water that is in the soil means the better the conductivity between the pads will be and will result in a lower resistance, and a higher SIG out.
