PC-based software upgrade:
This configuration does not require software for operation; however, Delcom’s productivity software is a very valuable tool. Delcom's powerful software has many useful features, allowing users to set pass/fail thresholds, monitor multiple sensors at once, save data for further analysis, and more. It is designed to make common tasks as fluid, intuitive, and easy as possible. The software requires a PC running Windows XP or newer OS.
The 873 Interface Module can accommodate up to 12 sensors. A user may want to purchase additional sensors in order to increase the range of the entire system or to take measurements at two or more physical locations.
The sensor is designed to be used without a stage. However, a stage is recommended for applications requiring a high level of precision. The stage will hold the elevation of the conductive layer flush with the sensor and allow for better xy positioning of the material above the sensor.
Delcom can source a laptop, desktop, tablet, or industrial touchpanel PC for customers, if needed.
