Pressure Sensors and Systems


Pressure sensors and systems by Tekscan provide an array of force sensitive cells that measure the pressure distribution between virtually any two mating or contacting surfaces. Tekscan's pressure sensors and systems can fill your tactile pressure and force measurement needs by providing insight into static and dynamic pressure events, helping you to improve product design, reduce testing time, and perform quality control inspections.


Tactile Pressure Sensor

Tekscan pressure sensors and systems are simple to use and include pressure sensors, sensor scanning electronics, and software. The pressure sensors and systems enable you to optimize design choices by providing high-resolution displays of tactile pressure data in real-time or 2-D and 3-D images.
