Unlike its major competitors, the Bend Sensor is self-contained and requires no mechanical components. This eliminates the noise normally associated with mechanical swiping and rubbing allowing for greater accuracy than with traditional rotary and linear pots. Furthermore, the Bend Sensor is not prone to degradation through mechanical contact, so it has a longer life than many competing sensors. The longer life of components means fewer system breakdowns due to mechanical failure, so it is more reliable and less expensive to system operations.
Bend Sensors are easily sealed against harsh environmental conditions without added bulk and have a high temperature range tolerance making them very flexible in their application.
The Bend Sensor greatly reduces the dimensions of sensor devices, leading to greater versatility in system design and tremendous cost-savings for the customer. The Bend Sensor is superior in product life and reliability to competing devices which have a much higher cost.
