Xsensor Pressure Mapping Systems
Q. What is Pressure Mapping?
A. The ability to measure the pressure between two contacting surfaces
e.g. Driver & Seat, Tyre & Road, Pipe flange & Gasket, Body Armour & Athlete, Semiconductor & Heatsink...
The possibilities are only limited by our imagination.
The video is a good example of automotive seat studies revealing the driver's skeletal movement following the motion of the car.
Why Xsensor Pressure Mapping Systems give you more!
Capacitive technology is one of the key elements and this provides:
- Best low pressure performance
measure down to 0.1psi*, even 'see' down to air currents
- High active area up to 70%+ (compared to <25%)
This means you are more likely to witness your event
- Robust calibration with intervals up to 1 year
More time working and less time wasted calibrating
* 1.0 psi = 6.89kPa, (51.7mmHg, 0.07kg/cm2, 0.689N/cm2)
The unrivalled ability of the low pressure range sensors from Xsensor allow many human body studies with exciting and revealing results while the higher pressure range sensors offer improved spatial resolution and the increased sensor element density needed by racing teams to accurately profile tyres to generate maximum contact area through correct chassis setup.
