Variohm Eurosensor is now offering Spectra Symbol’s Flex sensor — a low-cost angle displacement sensor that registers a resistance change depending on the amount of bend radius induced in the sensor.

The single-piece Flex sensor is currently used in applications, including finger location for gaming gloves and displacement sensing in fitness equipment, as well as a range of automotive and medical applications.

It is normally fixed by an integral self-adhesive backing, to allow the sensor to bend freely through a typical angle of 90°, and its bend resistance increases in correlation to the bend angle to an upper value between 45 and 125kΩ with high repeatability.

With additional external control, the resistive output can be arranged to provide a simple voltage divider with sensitivity adjustment or other output state features, such as threshold switching.
