CAPACITIVE TACTILE SENSORS WITH DIRECT DIGITAL OUTPUT

April 3, 2006   Staff

Pressure Profile Systems, Inc. has announced DigiTacts sensors based on capacitance rather than resistance. Units differ from earlier versions by providing direct digital outputs (3.3 or 5 V) rather than raw analog voltage levels. Small and flat (less than half a millimeter thick), the devices provide pressure readings from 0 to 140 kPa in 0.7 kPa increments.
