The STAN thermal seat test manikin was created to evaluate the thermal comfort and moisture management properties of automobile, truck, airplane, and mass transit seating. STAN contains eight independently controlled thermal zones with integrated backside cooling and (optional) sweating skin system to simulate metabolic heat and perspiration levels.
For passive seats, use STAN to precisely measure heat and moisture exchange. Heated seat evaluations are based on actual energy transfer, not just surface temperature, and realistic perspiration levels also allow for accurate assessment of cooled/ventilated seats. STAN’s exclusive Dynamic Heatflux Sensor (DHS) technology accurately measures the transient energy exchange between skin and seat surface.
