Pressure Sensor Tex
Pressure Sensor Tex is based on a patent technology using proprietary conductive inks to create stretchable, thin, film pressure sensitive textiles. Sensing Tex manufacturing technology provides customization resulting in conductive inks applying in any pattern. This allows a pressure sensing element of any shape which follows the form and flow of the textile. The surface of the fabric is thus transformed into a textile area with sensing properties.
The specific combination of materials and techniques allows the creation of a textile capable of measuring multi-touch pressure sensing. This property is used in a wide variety of textile based sensing products in a range of markets that require Pressure Mapping or heat pressure maps.
Accuracy and Reliability
- A non intrusive system The sensors can be integrated into any fabric or textile backing. The sensor area will be packed accordingly to customer requirements. The possibility to avoid the use of plastic covers will increase the feeling of transparent systems to the user.
No installation work is required; simply place the Pressure Tex at a chosen point. Make sure it covers the area you want to monitor.
It is very unlikely for the system to become damaged. However, the cost will be made feasible to replace it. No installation work is necessary.
To monitor larger areas, more than one system may be needed.
There are two generational types of the system; the first generation is a textile flexible sensor and the second generation is a stretchable sensor.
- Can I recognize different levels of pressure?
You can recognize different level of pressures due to the analog behavior of the sensor. If you want to check specific resistivity patterns vs pressure, please download the Data Sheet.
The available size of the Pressure Sensor does not fit exactly with our needs. What should we do?
The Pressure Sensor Tex Development Kit is based on standard customer requirements. A customized solution is normally the expected outcome for your industrial order. Please, check our “How we work” principles and do not hesitate to contact our engineer team.
Is it possible to receive more resolution to my measurements?
We can design almost anything you can imagine, from big area sensor mats to high resolution small area pressure sensors. Contact us and you will have the solution you need.
