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 (10kΩ). As the flex sensor is bent in either direction, the resistance gradually decreases. The sensor is also pressure sensitive and may be used as a force or pressure sensor. The flex sensor operating temperature is -45°F to 125°F.
The sensor measures 3/8 inch wide, 4 1/2 inches long and only .038 inches thick!
