Active sensing technology for high performance measurements
Main element of the sensor module is a highly sensitive resistive pressure sensor matrix. Due to its special design, the individual sensor cells can be strung together seamlessly, without the occurrence of any “blind” areas on the sensing surface. The patented active scanning process enables a precise acquisition of even highly dynamic pressure profiles with an excellent selectivity. The adjustable analog front-end and the integrated signal processor provide high-quality pressure profile detection without the need of additional components.
USB 2.0 and UART interface
Directly connect the WTS sensors to any computer
Tactile sensing modules of the WTS series have both a UART and a USB 2.0 interface. While its UART interface is preferably suitable for a simple connection to embedded control solutions, the USB interface allows full bandwidth pressure profile acquisition. To facilitate the integration into custom applications, the WTS modules will emulate a virtual serial port via USB (CDC profile), so no additional drivers are required for major operating systems. Whether UART or USB, the WTS sensor modules support a well-documented communication protocol providing powerful commands for data acquisition.
