Sensor with length of 55,37 mm increases its resistance during the bending by the metal pads on the outside (the text inside the arc). Leads have a popular pitch of 2.54 mm (0.1") so that the sensor can be mounted on the contact plate or connected via wires.


Sensors of this type are used in an interactive gloves designed to control robots, for example, in theNintendo Power Glove.



Do not bend the sensor in the part where are no metal plates. Useful part of the sensor can be bent within acceptable limits. More details in the documentation.

Question: Good day, does this deflection sensor have the ability to bend the other way? Because in the documentation they show one way and I'm having a hard time finding information on whether if I bend slightly the other way nothing will happen.
Answer: The manufacturer states on its website that the sensor can only be bent one way. Bending the sensor the other way will not yield any reliable data and may damage the sensor.
