Experimenting with medical mechanical probes

So far, I’ve had luck experimenting with a couple of mechanical probes:

  • ATL probe: a great familly of mechanical probe. There are even annular ones. Great set of technology: reed switches, inductive pulses, three piezos per head.. and simple motor power supply. Plug in 5V and you’re done.
  • Bard: electromagnets. Teardown is quite easy, access to the head more than easy.
  • HP: a simple piezo and motor driven relatively easily at 5V.
  • Kretz AW14 5B A: first of the series! Can’t remember though how I powered it. Need to thinking.
