Step 1: Introduction
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 resistance of the flex sensor changes when the metal pads are on the outside of the bend (text on inside of bend).
