The High Speed I-Scan from Tekscan is a pressure and force measurement system capable of capturing data from high-speed events such as impact studies and automobile safety and crash testing. The system provides powerful data acquisition and software with vivid 2-D and 3-D pressure displays, clear graphs, and analytic capability with intuitive, easy-to-use controls, claims the company. Dynamic force and pressure distribution events appear in real-time displays, and data is captured as a recording on a PC. High Speed I-Scan uses Tekscan’s patented thin sensors, which fit in tight areas, are minimally disruptive to the true pressure pattern, and provide output that identifies local, peak, and spatial pressures. According to the company, Tekscan's sensors have a ~5-microsecond response time with scanning speeds up to 20,000 Hz, ensuring almost instantaneous data capture.
