Electronic tactile force and pressure sensor.

* Sensor Products Inc. has introduced Tactilus, a new electronic tactile force and pressure indicating sensor that allows engineers to monitor how force is disbursed at the point of impact. Both air and liquid spray and flows can be evaluated in real time. The Tactilus system helps in the design of spray nozzles and fixtures. Spray impact levels as well as perimeter (spray pattern), spray coverage, dwell time The time cargo remains in a terminal's in-transit storage area while awaiting shipment by clearance transportation. See also storage.  of impact and uniformity across the spray contact area can be optimized and interpreted in real time. In the area of abrasive spraying, the system enables measurement of volume simultaneously with particle size Particle size, also called grain size, refers to the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks. The term may also be applied to other granular materials.  and velocity. This provides an accurate determination of the particle number The particle number, N, is the number of so called 'elementary particles' (or elementary constituents) in a thermodynamical system. The particle number is a fundamental parameter in thermodynamics and it is conjugate to the chemical potential.  density and volume flux. Additional applications for the Tactilus system in spray nozzle or fixture design or diagnostics include precise adjustment and optimization of surface coating Surface coating

A substance applied to other materials to change the surface properties, such as color, gloss, resistance to wear or chemical attack, or permeability, without changing the bulk properties.
 and finishing, powder and deposition coating, atomizing nozzles, flame and plasma spraying, and shot peening Shot peening is a process used to produce a compressive residual stress layer and modify mechanical properties of metals. It entails impacting a surface with shot (round metallic, glass or ceramic particles) with force sufficient to create plastic deformation. . Tactilus is a Windows-based system that consists of a thin ultra-sensitive (detection down to 1 Pa) grid based sensor array, an interface controller, and software.
