MC1600 is able to handle 48x48 FSR matrix sensors. Snowforce 3 pressure mapping monitoring software handles two devices simultaneously.
In the video above, general foot pressure mapping and gait measurement demo is provided. To build a matrix sensor mat with 1.6 m length, two MC1600 and MS9727 are concatenated to gather data while a person walking on the resulting ma.
Our customers have been happy with MC1509 force controller and we have had great time working with them. They shared great idea and feedback and we are thrilled to release our new data acquisition electronics for FSR force matrix sensors - MC1600.
MC1600, a successor of MC1509, is fully compatible with all sensors that are designed for MC1509.
MC1600 has many advanced features - elegant housing, higher measurement speed, improved accuracy, and reliable data transmission mechanism.
This product will be an ideal companion for industry engineers, academic researchers, and many other developers who need affordable FSR matrix sensing solution.

In this post, we share Snowforce 3 video manual.
Snowforce 3 is Kitronyx proprietary software to handle force/pressure mapping data from Snowboard 2, MC1509, and MC1600.
We value your time. We value your budget. We launch rapid sensor prototyping service.
Our customers are happy with our custom designed FSR matrix sensors and we have had great time working with our valuable clients. They are using our sensors in medical, automotive, semiconductor, and various cutting edge industrial applications.
Now we launch Rapid Sensor Prototyping service. This service is carefully devised to satisfy researchers, students, hobbyists, etc who need FSR matrix sensors but do not need production grade manufacturing. Of course this new service is suitable for enterprise customers who want to test our technology with small amount of budget and time.
Visit our Rapid Sensor Prototyping Service page and order sensors you want to build!
Snowboard 2 is a low cost data acquisition electronics for FSR matrix sensors. It can be used as a standalone device as well as an Arduino shield. In this demo video, Snowboard 2 is combined with Arduino Uno, SeedStudio Bluetooth Shield 2.0, a gas sensor, and a temperature sensor. Arduino collects all sensor data and transmit them to host PC via Bluetooth network.
We added a new feature to Snowforce 3. As you can see in the figures above, center of force (COF) is displayed on top of force map.
The new release of Snowforce 3 includes major improvements e.g. better visualization of 2D force image, data management, as well as multi-device support. A comprehensive feedback from our customers are fully integrated into this release.
With Snowforce 3 we give a powerful boost to our mission of providing a cutting-edge and affordable data visualization for matrix force sensing. We hope you enjoy using Snowforce 3!
Snowforce 3 is available at our download page.
[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.
