[Update January 9, 2019] Features
MC1600 is the Kitronyx new data acquisition electronics for FSR matrix sensors. It will be released next month and replace our best selling MC1509 electronics.
This video shows shock detection by ball drop using Kitronyx pressure distribution measurement system. The system is composed of FSR force matrix sensor, data acquisition electronics and software.
Kitronyx is Selected as TOP 35 Sensor Technology Blogs by Feedspot.
Snowboard 2 supports FSR matrix sensor as well as popular single point FSR sensors.
This post describes how to measure data from single zone FSR sensors with Snowboard 2.
Snowboard 2 can gather data from 10 single point FSR sensors simultaneously.
Connect your sensors to Snowboard 2 as shown in the photo above.
Then you need to download and unzip FSR Monitor app in download page.
If you are not familiar with Snowboard 2, consult this document first.
Double click 'fsrmonitor.exe'.
FSR Monitor will be shown as below. Click 'CHOOSE PORT' and select a port that your Snowboard 2 is attached.
Click 'START' and gently press sensors. You will see bar graphs changing.
Let's start logging to use FSR data later. Click 'START LOGGING' and click the same button just seconds after.
In data folder you can find CSV file. Open it with Excel or other application that supports CSV formatted file.
In CSV, measurement data is well stored and you can use this information for your future use.

Kitronyx releases a new FSR matrix sensor MS9727.
MS9727 is a huge FSR matrix sensor that has never been released in the market.
Active sensing area is 730 mm (W) x 460 mm (H) and it is compatible with MC1509 force controller.
Data acquisition is done by using Snowforce as well as Kitronyx APIs that let users easily embed Kitronyx sensors into their own projects such as smart mat, robotic applications and other interesting sensory applications.
