Tactile Pressure Sensors & Measurement Systems
The I-Scan® System by Tekscan is a versatile pressure measurement system using Tekscan's patented thin-film pressure sensing technology. At the system's heart is a tactile sensor capable of measuring pressures as low as 5mmHg and as high as 175 MPa. Sensors measure approximately 0.1 mm in thickness. Output can be monitored in 2D or 3D on a computer using software provided by Tekscan. Tekscan's wide pressure range has enabled them to pursue applications varying from mattress design to stress analysis of concrete support structures. Potential applications include door seal force measurement, high-speed impact studies, gasket and seal analysis, fastener and clamp load analysis, and fabric and material density measurement.
The I-Scan® software system displays the pressure and force information as it happens (in 'real time') on the computer screen, in vibrantly colored 2D or 3D images. Dynamic tests can also be recorded as a "movie", and played back with operating controls similar to a home VCR.
