Thermetrics 12-zone Thermal Foot Test System (TFTS) makes it possible to quantify the thermal effects of socks, shoe/boot design, insulation, and ventilation, in environmental conditions ranging from -40°C to +50°C. Independent thermal zones offer ultra-stable resistance wire heating for uniform heat flux. Optional sole compression system simulates human weight for realistic evaluation of sole/midsole insulation materials.
The Thermal Foot Test System’s unique ankle and toe joint is the key to easy installation into even the most rigid footwear – even ski boots or in-line skates. The sweating foot model includes a removable wicking fabric skin and computer-controlled fluid metering system. All Thermal Foot Test Systems come with a Dell laptop PC with ThermDAC control software, providing full device control, fault detection, data logging, and analysis capabilities.
