A simple flex sensor 2.2" in length. As the sensor is flexed, the resistance across the sensor increases. The resistance of the flex sensor changes when the metal pads are on the outside of the bend (text on inside of bend). Connector is 0.1" spaced and bread board friendly. Check datasheet for full specifications.
- Bend Resistance: minimum 2 times greater than the flat resistance at 180° pinch bend
- Flat Resistance: 10K Ohms ±30%
- Power Rating : 0.5 Watts continuous; 1 Watt Peak
