Sweating Skin System

Provides volumetric control of sweat rate, selectable by manikin zone or region. A network of pores over the surface of the manikin are spaced to uniformly deliver water to the skin surface, where a removable wicking fabric skin layer evenly.

  • Provides volumetric control of sweat rate, selectable by manikin region
  • Network of pores over the surface of the manikin are spaced to uniformly deliver water to the skin surface
  • Removable fabric skin layer evenly distributes water by wicking
  • Fluid supply utilizes a single constant-pressure pump external to the manikin
  • All electrical connections are moisture-protected for safe use with sweating skin layer

Zone controllers within the manikin modulate the fluid volume and distribute it to pores on the skin surface.

Using ThermDAC software, each manikin zone can be controlled to a specific flow rate setpoint. Flow rates can be adjusted at any time during the course of a test.
