Applications

The FlexiForceTM Prototyping Kit allows engineers and designers the freedom to plug their preferred circuit module(s), easily make sensitivity adjustments, and gain confidence in how a FlexiForce sensor will behave in their prototype. The open-source nature of thkit makes for a more efficient progression to field-testing and the final embedded design.

Benefits

  • Sensitivity adjustment made programmable via reference voltage. An on-board jumper easily selects the applied voltage.
  • Resistor/capacitor values easy to swap out.
  • Test FlexiForce sensors with the same methods used by Tekscan application engineers.
  • Be more confident in FlexiForce sensor performance in your proof-of-concept and prototype.
  • See instant feedback of sensor performance under different loading actuators and interfacing materials.
  • The small and affordable kit saves engineers and designers the effort of building circuitry and other components for their FlexiForce-embedded proof-of-concept or prototype.
  • Interchangeable analog circuit modules allows users to test the functionality of their FlexiForce sensors with ease.
  • Open-source software interface allows users to control loading, record sensor data, adjust sensitivity, and calibrate the sensor.

Factory calibration

Factory calibration

During a factory calibration, not only the characteristic data is checked but also a comprehensive functional test and minor, preventive maintenance work is made to increase the reliability of the measuring devices and prevent possible failures.
