• Measures stretch, displacement and force
• Changes resistance when stretched
The Images Scientific 2" Flexible Stretch Sensor is a unique component that changes resistance when stretched. When relaxed the sensor material has a nominal resistance of 1000 ohms per linear inch. As the stretch sensor is stretched the resistance gradually increases. When the sensor is stretched to 150% of its original length (2" X 150% = 3"), its resistance will approximately double to 2.0 Kohms per inch.
The stretch sensor is a new way to measure stretch, displacement and force. The sensor is a flexible cylindrical cord with hook electrical terminals at each end. The sensor measures 2 inches long, not including the electrical terminals, and only .060 inches diameter!
Applications for the Images Scientific 2" Flexible Stretch Sensor:
• Virtual gloves and suits
• Robot exoskeletons
