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 Nintendo 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).
Connector is 0.1" spaced and bread board friendly. Check datasheet for full specifications.
Based on 1 ratings:
Although their readings to fluctuate and are sometimes inconsistent, they work how they are implemented. They are pretty flimsy and you can accidentally break the pins when you try to insert them on a breadboard. Other than that, with proper care and caution, they will provide you with the right readings for your projects. :)
