Tekscan introduces two new software add-ons: the Pressure Mapping Software Development Kit (SDK) and the Data Reader Toolkit (DRT) . These products allow users to access and manipulate Tekscan software functions, allowing more control over the acquisition and analysis of pressure data.
The Pressure Mapping SDK gives a developer the ability to program an application that controls and interfaces with Tekscan scanning electronics, sensors, and software. This is ideal for repeated testing in laboratory research and manufacturing/OEMs (quality control, test, machine setup). Users can customize the presentation and analysis of the resulting interface pressure data, making routine processes more efficient:
The Data Reader Toolkit allows 3rd party software (C#, MATLAB, LabView, and VB) to open and read Tekscan .FSX files. This is ideal for users who typically run complex analyses or collect large amounts of data, as there is no need to store data in multiple file formats. Users can easily import large amounts of Tekscan pressure data and script a custom analysis:
