Capacitec Launches Nanometer Resolution Single Channel Non-Contact Displacement Amplifier in a Standard OEM Package

Ayer, Mass., USA - Capacitec, Inc. (Capacitec), a leading ISO9001: 2008 certified designer and manufacturer of non-contact capacitive displacement, gap and parallelism sensing systems, bore gauges, data acquisition systems, linearization and display software, has announced the launch of the model 410-XSC, a new family of single channel, stand-alone capacitance amplifiers with superior stability, resolution, signal-to-noise ratio and bandwidth in a standard OEM package.

Measuring just 55 x 100 x 12.7mm (2.2 x 3.9 x 0.50 in.), the compact Capacitec model 410-XSC amplifier is designed to be compatible with new and existing non-contact displacement and gap probes. It features an open frame for maximum flexibility, or optional compact enclosure with power supply, to suit a variety of measurement environments. For applications that require use of multiple sensors, the boards can be rack mounted and optionally connected to Capacitec Bargrafx(TM), a LabView® based data acquisition and display software, providing additional linearization and signal conditioning capabilities.

Because of its flexible design, the model 410-XSC can support a variety of standard and customer displacement and gap sensor signal amplification requirements, including support for very small sensors with high-displacement range and long cable lengths, as well as those with especially wide displacement and gap ranges. It is a popular choice for OEM customers with stringent high sensitivity application requirements, such as those found in nano indenters, dynamic slot die coater head air gap to metal roller parallelism measurements or similar, load frames and laser alignment mechanism monitoring.
