Connecting Flex sensor to 8/8/8 board.

Postby Weka » Mon Apr 16, 2012 9:13 pm

Hi,

I have a Spectra Symbol flex sensor and I want to plug it into my 8/8/8 phidget board.

Is the voltage divider the only way to go about this? Or can I attach it to the green analog inputs? If so how I can go about this?

Thanks!

Angus

Yes, the voltage divider is the way to go.

I also read on SparkFun to add better strain relief close to the pins, since that is where the most common fail point is.
