The Tactilus door seal sensor system from Sensor Products analyzes contact pressure between the seal of a door and the rubber seal of a vehicle. Using piezoresistive sensors, the pressure-mapping system displays detailed pictures and statistical data instantly through its user-friendly Windows-based software. Proper placement and construction of seals have an effect on wind noise, waterproofing, vibration, fuel efficiency, and air quality. Through the system, the fit and pressure uniformity of the door seal can be verified, and surface defects, abrasion marks, and voids can be quickly exposed. All data can be recorded for future use and is available in a variety of graphical and statistical formats. A manufacturer may find it necessary to make changes to the door seal or the actual body of the vehicle. Featuring portability, the system is also fully customizable.
