DigiTacts are a high-performance tactile sensor system best for use in embedded or OEM integration applications. They are available in many sizes and pressure ranges and are currently in use in products in the fields of medical devices, robotics, automotive, and consumer electronics.


  • Sensitive with stable and repeatable sensor output that can be used virtually any geometry—testing is not constrained by surface design.

  • High performance sensing technology that saves time and improves results by significantly reducing recalibration and repeated tests allowing developers to resolve problems and answer questions faster. Twice the repeatability, 100x better minimum pressure detection, and 50% better pressure sensing resolution compared to typical resistive tactile sensor technologies.

  • Compact wireless Bluetooth electronics allows for simple and easy set up with minimal wires

  • Export, replay, save, and analyze your data with Chameleon’s intuitive and easy to use visualization tools and easily export to other softwares.

Spec Sheet


Digitacts sensors are ideal for product designers and engineers who wish to embed tactile sensors into their products. These sensors comprise of multiple sensing pads, each typically with 12-24 sensing elements, which can be placed on any location of choice in the active sensor area. Data from sensors is transferred via I²C or SPI digital interfaces, allowing for easy integration into products.

Select DigiTacts sensors with embedded microcontrollers can function either as intelligent peripherals or control. Depending on their configuration, they are sensitive enough to capture pulse waveforms or rugged enough for use as process monitors in a mass production environment. Multiple sensors can be combined to cover larger areas with denser spatial resolution.

We offer the DigiTacts primarily as development kits intended for developers who wish to incorporate PPS’s DigiTacts sensors into the design of their product.  DigiTacts Full Systems comprise of two DigiTacts sensors of chosen design coupled with the rechargeable D710 interface electronics with Bluetooth connectivity that attaches the sensors to a computer. The system runs PPS’s Chameleon Tactile Visualization and Acquisition software.  This industry-leading software is fully featured which means it can export replay, save test data, and perform analysis functions. Chameleon can also record and playback video with your data results for even greater insight and analysis.

Licensing and manufacturing arrangements for Digitacts embedded sensors and relevant software are negotiated independently of the purchase of the DigiTacts Full Systems.
