Introduction

Are you tired of clicking mechanic button? Well, try our capacitive touch sensor. We can find touch sensors mostly on electronic device. So upgrade your Arduino project with our new version touch sensor and make it cool!!

This little sensor can "feel" people and metal touch and feedback a high/low voltage level. Even isolated by some cloth and paper, it can still feel the touch. Its sensitivity decrease as isolation layer gets thicker. 

Note: This module should be used together with easy-plug control board

Specification

  • Interface: Easy plug
  • Supply Voltage: 3.3V to 5V
  • Sensor type: Digital
  • Size: 45*20mm
  • Weight: 5g

Sample Code

int ledPin = 13;                // Connect LED on pin 13, or use the onboard one
int KEY = 2;                 // Connect Touch sensor on Digital Pin 2
 
void setup(){
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      // Set ledPin to output mode
  pinMode(KEY, INPUT);       //Set touch sensor pin to input mode
}
 
void loop(){
   if(digitalRead(KEY)==HIGH) {      //Read Touch sensor signal
        digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);   // if Touch sensor is HIGH, then turn on
     }
   else{
        digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);    // if Touch sensor is LOW, then turn off the led
     }
}

Result 

Done wiring and powered up, upload well the code, then touch the sensor with your finger, both D2 led on the sensor and D13 indicator on UNO board are on. Otherwise, those two indicators are turned off.
