Two-Directional Bi-Flex Sensors™

Two-Directional Bi-Flex Sensors™ - FLX-01

Images new bi-directional Bi-Flex Bend Sensor™ is a unique 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.

Bi-Directional Flex Sensor

The sensor measures 3/8 inch wide, 4 1/2 inches long and only .038 inches thick!

One-Directional Flex Sensors

One-Directional Flex Sensors - FLX-03

One directional Flex Sensor is a unique component that changes resistance when bent or flexed (Patent 5086785). An un flexed sensor has a nominal resistance of approximately 10,000 ohms (10 K). As the flex sensor is bent in one direction the resistance gradually increases. Range of resistance's of the FLX-03 sensor may vary between 10K and 40K depending upon the degree of the flex.

The flex sensor operating temperature is -45F to 125F.
