    Flexiforce kit help

    Hey all,
    Has anyone used the Flexiforce sensor kit? I've just got one but now I am quite confused.(but being a newbie at robotics, it's probably a given) If you check out the link, http://www.trossenrobotics.com/flexi...ensor-kit.aspx and see the picture, you will see the flexiforce cable has 3 prongs. The Voltage Divider that comes with the kit has only 2 inputs for the sensor. Anyone use this kit successfully and if so, which prongs go where? I haven't found any answers in the docs yet.
    Thanks!
    Eric

    Hey Eric,

    Yep, that's a common confusing question, so no worries

    If you look closer at the middle prong, you'll see that it doesn't go anywhere (it's not connected to anything inside the plastic). The only thing that I can think of is that it's used for stability purposes, but I'm no expert here. The outside two prongs are what you want to use.

    Thanks Alex,
    Shortly after posting this, I found that answer after reading the FlexiForce docs again. (but couldnt post) My caffeine buzz must have worn off the first time I read it. Thanks for the response! It works great!

    no problem!

    Sorry that ya couldn't post. We were in the middle of migrating our site from one server to a new one. Everything should be running much more smoothly now There may be a few kinks still to work out though.
