Newton Thermal Manikin System
"Newton" is a complete turn-key thermal manikin system used world-wide for a broad range of clothing and environmental testing. Newton was developed using advanced CAD digital modeling and is available as an articulated 50th percentile Western or Asian Male body form, in either dry or sweating skin formats.
The manikin is constructed using a thermally conductive carbon-epoxy composite shell with embedded resistance wire heating and sensor wire elements. Standard zone configurations include 20, 26, or 35-zone models, but Newton’s thermal properties can be customized for higher sensitivity, faster transient response, greater ambient range, or outfitted for other research capabilities.
Walking, breathing, physiological (human comfort) software, and female conversion accessories are also available. Standard Newton systems include manikin form, control electronics, laptop PC, and exclusive ThermDAC software.
