Flex Sensor 2.2 inches are commonly used in Robotic Gloves and other Robotic Control application. It can be used to analyze how much a material is being bent. This flex sensor is 2.2” long and has two output leads which acts like a variable resistor. That is the resistance between two pins change based on how much the sensor is bent. It is commonly used along with another resistor to build a voltage divider circuit and then obtain a variable voltage based on the change in resistance of the sensor.
