IC² has launched two all-new form factors for DirectShear™ Sensors in response to customer demand. The Capacitive Sensor Units for DirectShear™ are now available in both a rack-mountable standalone unit and a CompactPCI® module.
The rack-mountable (2U) standalone units are an enhancement to previous desktop designs, enabling operation on the desktop or installed into a standard equipment rack. They feature low-noise AC and rechargeable Li-ion battery power sources.
The CompactPCI® modules (3U) offer the same performance as the standalone units, but in a much smaller form factor for installation into a standard CompactPCI® chassis. The design leverages power supplied by the chassis to reduce overall size and is ideal for those with an existing chassis or wanting to use a large number of DirectShear™ sensors simultaneously. Further, these modules are available at a lower price point, thanks to the cost-saving design.
Multi-channel units are also available in both form factors.
