Tactile pressure and force measurement system capable of measuring up to 20 kHz, ideal for impact and crash testing applications.
High Speed I-Scan is an enhanced version of the I-Scan pressure and force measurement system, that supports faster sensor scanning speeds (up to 20,000 Hz). The system is ideal for measuring high impact forces, especially during martial arts and crash testing.
Due to its ability of capturing such quick events, High Speed I-Scan has been featured on various television shows, including Spike TV's Deadliest Warrior, Discovery Channel's Xtreme Martial Arts, and Mythbusters.
"The system is visually strong, fast to set up, easy to work with, and easily understood by viewers. It also can provide an accurate number even when punctured by the Cestus. On its dying electrical signal, while being slammed full of holes - the system came through. That says a lot about the effectiveness of the [Tekscan] technology."

Increase the mobility and versatility of the High-Speed I-Scan system with three new add-on options:
VersaTek Wireless transmits sensor data wirelessly directly from the sensor and Handle to the computer! VersaTek Datalogger collects and stores sensor data in its internal memory so that it can be retrieved and uploaded to the computer at a later time. VersaTek Wireless/Datalogger offers both capabilities for complete flexibility in data collection!
*Scan speeds dependent on sensor and electronics configuration.
A Tekscan system consists of scanning electronics, software, and patented, thin-film pressure sensors. Our qualified engineers will help you select the optimal system configuration to meet your application requirements. To learn more about our scanning electronics and sensor performance specifications, please visit our Technology page.
Scanning Electronics-Every Tekscan system uses specially designed scanning electronics called Handles or Cuffs. The electronics connect to the sensor, gather the data from the sensor, and then process and send this data to your computer via USB connection.

Tekscan’s pressure sensors have a ~5 microsecond response time, ensuring almost instantaneous data capture. High Speed I-Scan uses patented thin-film, tactile pressure sensors, which easily fit in tight areas, such as under shin pads or under airbag covers. Sensors are minimally disruptive to the true pressure pattern and provide output that identifies local, peak, and spatial pressures.
The most commonly used sensors for the High-Speed I-Scan are models 9500 and 9550. Other sensors models can be substituted to fit your application requirements.
The High Speed I-Scan has the same software as classic I-Scan, providing powerful data acquisition, vivid 2-D and 3-D pressure displays, clear graphs and analytic capability with intuitive, easy to use controls. Dynamic force and pressure distribution events appear in real-time displays and the data is captured as a recording on your PC.

The software is available in several languages including Spanish, French, and German. View software languages available.
There have also been a number of research projects conducted where pressure measurement technology has played a crucial role. For a list of research studies, download the Industrial bibliography.
