Description: A simple flex sensor
4.5" in length. As the sensor is flexed, the resistance across the sensor
increases. Patented technology by Spectra Symbol - they claim these sensors
were used in the original
Power Glove. I love the Nintendo Power Glove. It's so bad!
The resistance of the flex sensor changes when the metal pads are on the
outside of the bend (text on inside of bend).
Straight (unflexed) resistance: ~9000 Ohm
90 degree bend resistance: ~14000 Ohm
180 degree bend resistance : ~22000 Ohm
Connector is 0.1" spaced and bread board friendly.
We recommend using our Voltage Divider
and 24" Sensor Cable
to create an analog signal interface for connection to most microcontrollers.
