The Touchstar Switchgear Measurement System is a dedicated measurement solution for the evaluation of physical characteristics of automotive switchgear and user controls. The system can generate force/displacement and torque/angular displacement profiles for multiple types of controls, including push switches, rocker switches, panel rotaries and column stalks.
The objective measurement data produced can be used to support the product development process through bench-marking, specification, design verification and fault diagnosis.
This equipment is part of WMGs Product Evaluation Technology Centre which focuses its research in advanced metrology techniques, human machine interface (HMI) research, and design validation technologies. The group work with a variety of companies to provide innovative processes and design solutions to enhance and speed up new product development.
