The USB GLOVE KIT contains 5 bend dual segment Bend Sensors®. There are 3 longer Bend Sensors® and 2 shorter Bend Sensors®. The 3 longer sensors are for the index, middle and ring fingers, the 2 shorter sensors are for the thumb and pinky finger. The Bend Sensor® performs best when it increases with resistance when bent. To achieve this, place the sensor on the finger with the text readable from the top. If the text is backwards then the sensor is upside down.
- Attach the 20-pin connector of the wire-harness to the PCB using connector J3.
- 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 with only 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 pinky finger.
