Tools & Industrial Applications
QTC™ Material sensor uses hand pressure as switch and variable speed control of drill.
QTC™ Material ‘dead-man’ safety switch used as safety feature on chainsaw. Saw activates when both hands are gripping the handle areas embedded with QTC™ Material.
QTC™ Material pressure mats / floor pad switch for health & safety, security and multimedia applications.
Low cost covert method of detection. Sensor pad can be mounted on a flat or curved surfaces covered with conventional coverings, such as carpet. Sensor can be produced to given size and thickness.
QTC™ Material integrated within a badge to detect low level radiation in medical or industrial environments.
Electronics can monitor/alert independent users on legal, safe radiation exposure throughout their work conditions. QTC™ Material can also react to sudden change in radiation level to alert individuals or staff.
QTC™ Material embedded controls within space suits.
For example suit light controls on shoulder or remote controls to manoeuvre robotic instruments, such as a rover to explore difficult terrain surfaces inaccessible or dangerous with a space suit.
Embedded controls within suits can be of benefit to military and navy for controlling UVA or underwater rover.
