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 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 and velocity. This provides an accurate determination of the particle number 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 and finishing, powder and deposition coating, atomizing nozzles, flame and plasma spraying, and shot peening. 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.
