Pressure switches are first past the post with equestrian simulator

Tapeswitch has provided pressure sensors for horse riding simulators manufactured by Racewood Equestrian Simulators. Racewood is one of the principal manufacturers of equestrian simulators, designing and manufacturing a unique, patented product to simulate a wide range of horse riding activities, including racing, polo, jumping and riding for equestrians of all abilities. Racewood machines have sensors at the neck, saddle and knee to identify the riding position and help identify and correct any flaws in the riders position.

Historically Racewood had used foil sensors, but these sensors were proving unreliable and didn't measure up to the company's exacting standards. Keen to find a better solution for its customers Racewood contacted Tapeswitch. Working closely with Racewood, Tapeswitch was able to identify a switch that would deliver just the right sensitivity that the customer needed and which allowed Racewood to fit the switches inside foam and leather.

Karen Keighley of Tapeswitch comments: "We were able to deliver a much improved solution at a good cost effective rate. This allows Racewood to improve their customers' experience without increasing the cost."
