Flex and Force

Flex and Force

Spectra Symbol's flex sensor is a bendable substrate that gives higher resistance readings as it flexes to a tighter radius. A 4.5" 10 KΩ sensor, for example, has low power requirements for its output feedback. Users can calculate the degree of flexure or the bend radius using resistance. Common uses include measuring finger traction, robotics and gaming. With a life cycle of over 1 million flexes, its durability is suitable for many consumer applications.
Poly Flex Circuitry

Poly Flex Circuitry

A replacement for a circuit board and wires, Spectra's Poly Flex Circuitry is printed on polyester reducing the cost by half compared to traditional Kapton solutions. It can flex and bend where needed in design and fit a form factor as low as 0.005", making it a versatile low cost alternative to traditional circuit boards.
Linear Sensors

Linear Sensors

Spectra potentiometers are low form-factor, low cost, and have low design requirements. They perform in environments that require high-temperature resistance, medical accuracy, and contactless tracking (MagnetoPot.) Custom lengths range from 10mm to 25 feet and are extensively used for absolute positioning.

Use in Actuators:

  • Actuators are found wherever position is automated.
  • The membrane potentiometer technology offers a low form-factor for the feedback it provides.
  • Recommended for use whenever absolute position is required.

Spectra Symbol designs and Manufactures custom linear pots for a variety of applications

flex-sensorOur best selling flex sensor at 4.5″ is not only a versatile option for robotics and hobbyists, but also wearables, beds, chairs, and automotive applicatons.

HotPot L 50mmThe SoftPot market is traditionally a custom solution for OEMs in their industrial machinery. Spectra’s most used SoftPots range from 2″-6′ lengths for medical devices in radiology, for dentistry chairs, and for manufacturing machinery.

dpsWe call it mobile medicine. One customer uses our flexible circuitry in a medical patch that releases a drug over 2.5 hours. Adhering to any size of forearm requires Spectra’s flex circuitry to fit unique curves. Assembled in our FDA- certified clean room, White Flex circuitry is more affordable and adaptable than traditional circuitry.
