Two-Directional Bi-Flex Sensors™ - FLX-01
The Bi-Flex Sensor™ is a component
that changes resistance when bent. An un-flexed sensor has a nominal
resistance of 10,000 ohms (10 K). As the flex sensor is bent in either
direction the resistance gradually decreases. Bi-Flex sensors are experimental sensors. No warranty is provided on the lifetime or stability of resistance.
Sensor is also pressure sensitive, and may be used as a force or pressure sensor
The flex sensor operating temperature is -45F to 125F.
The sensor measures 3/8 inch wide, 4 1/2 inches long and only .038 inches thick!
