Prof. S. Y Heo at College of Veterinary Medicine, Chonbuk National University applied Kitronyx MC1509 data acquisition electronics and MS9706 fine pitch FSR matrix sensor for capture surface pressure between animal joints.
This thin fine pitch MS9706 sensor provides qualified data and analysis of joint function. Kitronyx thin film pressure sensors are available in various sizes, and configurations for versatility and ease of use.
The combination of MC1509 and MS9706 gives pressure mapping and contact area between adjacent articulating bones for better understanding of their operation.
Note: MC1509 has been discontinued and replaced with MC1600.
Snowboard 2 and MS9723 FSR (force sensing resistor) tactile matrix sensor are collectively used to sense the tilt and misalignment of nip roller.
Snowboard 2 is a very cheap data acquisition electronics for FSR matrix array sensors but enough to get pressure map data from MS9723 tactile sensor sandwiched between two rollers.
In this video we show dynamic foot pressure mapping using our MP2512 smart sensor insole development kit.
MP2512 comes with two FSR (Force Sensing Resistor) sensor insoles which are insole shaped FSR matrix sensors. On the sensor 160 pressure sensing pixels are disposed to provide high resolution footprint force image.
This product also include Snowboard 2 – low cost pressure mapping electronics.
With Kitronyx API, a developer can easily capture foot pressure distribution data and send it to another application via TCP/IP.
It's the era of IoT (Internet of Things). Here we user force sesnsitive resistors (FSRs) to build an smart warehouse prototype. In this prototype, we use Snowboard 2 and a few single-zone FSR sensors.
Snowboard 2 is an entry low cost level pressure mapping electronics. In this video, a vase is put on top of our FSR matrix sensor MS9723 and Snowboard 2 measures and displays the pressure image of the pressure produced by the vase.
Pressure mapping system is widely used in various industrial fields such as manufacturing, electronics, automotive, medical, and so forth.
Here we shows an example of applying our pressure mapping solution to a manufacturing facility which is producing cool electronics products.
The system is composed of MC1600 data acquisition electronics and MS9760 FSR matrix sensor.
This video shows the video demo of animal gait analysis introduced in the previous post.
This spray pressure sensing demo shows increased sensitivity and resolution of novel Kitronyx tactile sensor technology. Spray pressure sensing is a valuable solution for designers working on applications in fluid and gas spray.
MC1600 electronics for FSR matrix sensor and MS9760 thru mode sensor are used for this demo.
In this article, drop ball impact test using our MC1600 data acquisition electronics and specially designed sensor is demonstrated.
In the left figure above, trajectory of dropped ball is clearly measured. The impact force by the ball can be also gathered and displayed in the right figure.
This system is developed according to the requirement from a client who needs quantitative analysis of impact force.
Kitronyx provides custom design service including sensors, electronics, and software. We welcome a new client who needs a pressure distribution measurement system and its customization.
Here are a few photos of our pressure mapping system designed for dogs and animals. The system is being used in a local veterinary clinic.
Sensors, electronics, software, and housing are all designed and/or developed by Kitronyx.
