Unique to the industry, each Tactilus Free Form® sensor element is individually calibrated, sequentially serialized and quality tested to ensure the highest repeatability and accuracy. In addition, our sensor assemblies feature ergonomic and high quality Berg connectors, ensuring durable interconnection.
Tactilus Free Form® Technology
The Tactilus Free Form® door seal sensor system is designed to allow the user to collect pressure position and magnitude data at discrete selected locations across a door seal. Proper placement and construction of seals has a dramatic effect on wind noise, waterproofing, vibration and air quality. Tactilus® door seal sensors aid the engineer in identifying interface pressures across any seal surface both statically, while the vehicle is stationary, as well as while being driven. The Tactilus Free Form® sensor system is a "user constructed" tactile surface pressure system that provides unprecedented flexibility and ease of use.
"The free form philosophy is to empower the user to select the precise location where they require data collection rather than the constrained "matrix" inherent in traditional fixed tactile surface sensors. Free Form was created to maximize both data collection efficiency and value." — Jeffrey G. Stark, CEO
