How to Interface Flux Sensor

This tutorial is going to teach you the basics on using Flux Sensor of 2.2 inches. Step 1: Introduction Description: It is a flex sensor which is 2.2 inches in length. This sensor works by bending the sensor itself. As the sensor is being flexed or bent, the resistance across the sensor increases. The greater the angle of bending, the greater the resistance. This can be tested with multimeter. The resistanc ...
