Fully integrated, multipurpose tire footprint pressure measurement system.
The TireScan™ CrossDrive system is a fully integrated solution capable of measuring large tire footprints at a high resolution. 250K sensing elements over a 508 mm x 508 mm (20 in. x 20 in.) area allows the system to measure footprints across a diverse tire portfolio (car to truck tires). The ruggedized housing is designed to handle harsh environments, allowing the system to collect footprint pressure data while the tire is experiencing shear forces from acceleration, deceleration, toe, and camber. The intuitive, application specific graphing and image analysis software enables quantitative and qualitative analysis of the tire footprint.
|Pressure Range||0-4,100 kPa (0-600 psi)|
|Thickness||0.2 mm (0.008 in.). Not compressible|
Components depend on system configuration. Additional items may be included with your system purchase.
CrossDrive's sensor can capture footprints of passenger, truck, agricultural, mining, and OTR tires at high spatial resolution.

TireScan™ provides the tools for a more comprehensive and higher quality analysis. The software displays the pressure distribution data in multiple formats. The user has the option to create and customize reports from the corresponding tire data and export as a CSV or Word file.
TireScan software is available in several languages including Spanish, French, and German. View all software languages.
In order to obtain the pressure data, our scanning electronics scan the thousands of sensing points within each sensor. The data is instantly relayed to the software on your PC via USB.
Aluminum housing was designed to provide a smooth surface for the tire to roll over the electronics. The leading and trailing plates can be attached for use during rolling tests or removed for static measurements using a load machine.
The sensor is able to withstand aggressive measurements such as Slip Angle Testing. (5kN of shear force shown above.)

Some system add-ons require hardware to interface with external inputs. A complete list of system add-ons can be found on the add-ons tab.
The equilibration process compensates for any variation or uneven output across individual sensing elements caused by manufacturing or repeated used of the sensor.
Optional add-on packages are available to provide additional functionality to pressure mapping systems. The features streamline data acquisition, interface with 3rd party devices, or synchronize pressure mapping recordings with video.
Some system add-ons require hardware so users and external devices can interface with the pressure mapping system.
