Flex Sensor


With its long life cycle, Spectra Symbol’s flexible sensor suitable for many applications

Flex SensorSpectra Symbol's flex sensor is a 4.5” bendable substrate that gives higher resistance readings as it flexes to a tighter radius. This 10KΩ sensor has low power requirements for its output feedback. The resistance can increase up to 5-times the base or flat state reading. Users can calculate the degree of flexure or the bend radius using resistance. Common uses include measuring finger traction, robotics and gaming. The low profile of the flex sensor allows it to wrap around surfaces or to fit in tight spaces. With a life cycle of over 1 million flexes, its durability is suitable for many consumer applications.
