Easy-Install System for Rat Touch Screen Systems
 
 

DETAILS

The Easy-Install was developed for the Bussey-Saksida Touch Screen Systems due to the large number of cables and connections that these systems require.

Our engineers designed the Easy-Install as a factory built, pre-cabled system that could be taken from a transit crate in one piece and wheeled into place, eliminating the effort needed to handle, move and install individual stations and their connections to the system interface and control.

AC power connections are then made to an integrated supply buss requiring only one plug going to a single AC outlet. This reduces the number of AC cables and provides for an electrically safer environment as earth grounding is properly terminated. Computer and Interface connections are then easily made as all cables are routed to the PC location, above the cubicles. The user’s monitor, keyboard and mouse can be located away from the system as needed. (Note: The computer and interface are not part of the Easy-Install these are purchased separately. Workstation monitor, keyboard and mouse extra length cables are sold separately.)

These touch screen systems have one Control PC for up to four (4) touch screen chambers. The Control PC requires an expanded motherboard to accommodate the various installed serial, VGA and I/O boards. Cabling for these plus IR camera and power are routed to each chamber.

In conclusion, the Easy-Install represents a savings when consideration is given to the ease of installation, the safety features we have incorporated, and the advantages in the efficiency of day-to-day functions of the lab and its cleanliness and tidiness, which offsets the initial cost.

The Easy-install follows a concept originally published by John Hopkins University (the materials used by Campden are much more economical but the space saving layout and mobility of chamber is in principle the same).
