Video: Three Easy Ways to Calibrate your Pressure Mapping System
Fast, Intuitive Calibration of your Tekscan Pressure Mapping System
Whether you're using I-Scan™, CrossDrive™, the Body Pressure Measurement System (BPMS™), or any other Tekscan pressure mapping system, all can be calibrated to correlate digital output to an engineering unit through one-of-three simple methods. This short video explains:
- Depending on the needs of your application, one of these three methods may be more advantageous than the others.
Tekscan technology can be calibrated to measure in a variety of common force and pressure units.
- Force units: grams, kilograms, newtons, knewtons, pounds, hpounds, and kpounds
- Pressure units: PSI, HPSI, KPSI, Ka, N/cm2, MPa, g/cm2, kg/cm2, mmHg, millibar, Bar, Kbar, ATM
- It is best practice to calibrate your system with the same interface materials that will be used in your application. Different interface materials, especially more compliant ones, can affect results.
