Tekscan, Inc. - The Anatomy of a Pressure Mapping Sensor VIDEO

Pressure mapping sensors are ultra-thin pressure-sensitive resistors (aka, tactile array sensors) used to capture pressure data between two surfaces. Each sensor consists of intersecting rows and columns of conductive material. At each intersection is a layer of pressure-sensitive material. As pressure is applied to the sensing area, the resistance of the pressure-sensitive material chan... (read more)

Tekscan, Inc. - Pressure Mapping as a Research & Development Tool

Technical overview on how capturing pressure profile data can enhance product development processes. The job of a design engineer is as much about searching for potential problems as it is finding solutions. Seeking new ways to advance a product or procedure often requires taking significant investment risks in test & measurement technologies. (read more)

Tekscan, Inc. - How Do Thin Position Sensors Work?

Thin linear potentiometers, or position sensors, are a unique component used to correlate the specific position of an actuator, physical contact, or touch to the sensor’s output. When physical contact is applied to the conductive area, the electrical output of the sensor varies with respect to the position of the actuator. (read more)

Tekscan, Inc. - How do tactile potentiometers work? VIDEO

Need to measure position between any two surfaces? Thin linear potentiometers, or position sensors, are a unique component used to correlate the specific position of an actuator, physical contact, or touch to the sensor’s output. When physical contact is applied to the conductive area, the electrical output of the sensor varies with respect to the position of the actu... (read more)

Tekscan, Inc. - WHITE PAPER: Force Measurement Different Techiques

This White Paper will provide insight about key attributes design engineers should know about load cells and force sensitive resistors. Engineers often wonder about the best method for measuring force feedback in their applications. In a broad sense, load cells and force-sensitive resistors (commonly referred to as FSRs) are the two most common methods. (read more)
