FLEX SENSOR

TINKS014

  1. This flex sensor is a variable resistor like no other.
  2. The resistance of the flex sensor increases as the body of the component bends. 
  3. The sensor provides an Analog output.
Features:-
  1. Output:- Analog
  2. Angle Displacement Measurement
  3. Bends and Flexes physically with motion device
  4. Simple Construction
  5. Operating voltage of FLEX SENSOR: 0-5V
  6. Can operate on LOW voltages
  7. Operating temperature: -45degreeC to +80degreeC
  8. Flat Resistance: 25K Ω
  9. Resistance Tolerance: +-30%
  10. Bend Resistance Range: 45K to 125K Ohms (depending on bend)
Applications:-
  1. Robotics
  2. Gaming (Virtual Motion).
  3. Medical Devices.
  4. Computer Peripherals.
  5. Musical Instruments.
  6. Physical Therapy.
