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 surface sensor skins.

Designed for multi-axis or curvaceous topographies the Tactilus Free Form® sensor system provides engineers the capability to collect andassimilate data from up to 32 separate sensor elements simultaneously, at desired locations on an application surface to maximize datacollection efficiency and value. This new approach to tactile surface pressure mapping maintains data integrity and usefulness while allowing engineers the capability of constructing their own sensor "matrix." 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.

Key Benefits:

  • Extraordinary flexibility to collect data precisely where you need it
  • Most inexpensive solution on the market
  • No training required
