The probe includes the Gen2 capture card and Expert Probe software. This allows for simultaneous connections by multiple users, and provides real-time expert processing at the probe. It also includes a number of security and reliability features.
Rack mounts and rail slide kits to mount the unit in a cabinet. Units may also be placed on a rack shelf or bench.
Do not remove the top panel from the probe. The probe was designed to cool most efficiently with the top panel in place. Opening the probe will void your warranty!
There is BIOS-controlled system monitoring that automatically slows down the CPU clocking in response to critical temperature sensors on the motherboard.
