The Flexpoint Bend Sensor® is a unique sensor that changes in resistance when it is bent. One of the most common applications for the Bend Sensor® are glove applications. Integrating the sensor into your application is not necessary trivial, therefore Flexpoint has developed the Bend Sensor® Glove kit as an easy to use demonstration on how to integrate the sensor into a VR system. The kit digitizes the analog signals of the Bend Sensor®, accelerometer and magnetometer to a graphical view on a PC. The Glove Kit Software must be downloaded and installed to display the position of fingers and orientation of the hand. All the schematics, firmware and software are provided for use in your own project. Below are the steps to install and use the kit.
For Kit Assembly:
1. Attach the 20-pin connector of the wire-harness to the PCB using buy nexium otc connector J3.
2. Attach the Bend Sensors® to the 3-prong connectors on the wire-harness. There are 5 of these, one for each Bend Sensor®. The cable on the wire-harness that only has one 3-prong connector is for the thumb. On the center cable of the wire-harness the end 3-prong connector is for the index finger. The centered 3-prong is for the middle finger. On the other cable that has two 3-prong connectors the end 3-prong connector is for the ring finger. The centered 3-prong connector on this cable is for the pinking finger.
