The 3" Unidirectional Flexible Bend Sensor® consists of a coated substrate, such as plastic, that changes in electrical conductivity as it is bent. Electronic systems connect to the sensor and measure with fine detail the amount of bending or movement that occurs. The single layer design of the Bend Sensor® eliminates many of the problems associated with conventional sensors such as dust, dirt, liquids, and heat and pressure affects. Over-laminates or over-molding may also be applied to the sensors for added environmental protection. Flexpoint Sensor Systems offers standard designs, and can also custom design and engineer a sensor that meets the dimensions and requirements of your application.
The single layer Bend Sensor® product allows for the measurement of mechanical movement, air flow, water flow, or even vibration. In addition, it has been tested to over 35 million cycles without failure. It can be used as a range of motion sensor, or as a very durable, very reliable switch in most harsh environments. The Bend Sensor® has no moving parts, is completely silent in operation and adaptable to a wide range of applications. The breadth of applications for our sensor is limited only by one’s imagination.
Flexpoint Sensor Systems is dedicated to delivering the most innovative, cost-effective solutions to its customers by consistently providing superior quality products and outstanding customer service from an exceptional group of employees. Whether your application requires a flexible sensor or a switch, the Flexpoint Bend Sensor® will help you get the job done.
