Six Pack Micro SD Card Reader enables commercial
users of Tetracam's multi-spectral imaging systems to maximize the
work they get out of their remote sensing investment.
When a user completes a mission with a Micro-MCA6, for example,
with a Tetracam Six Pack they need only remove the system's
image memories and insert new ones. This allows the aircraft
and its Micro-MCA to immediately return to productive remote sensing
operations. There is no need to tie up the imaging
system or the aircraft while the image memories transfer their
captured images to the host computer.
Six Pack Micro-SD Card Reader enables
host computers to connect to six high-capacity micro SD image cards
simultaneously. When the reader is populated with six image
cards from a mission, to PixelWrench2 –
the software that comes with each of our systems –
the cards look exactly like they do when a Micro-MCA camera array
is attached directly to the computer. Consequently, all camera
processing operations carried on by PixelWrench2 can proceed
normally. There is no need to bring the multi-spectral imaging
system to the host computer to
perform processing operations nor transfer image data from individual image
memory cards one card at at time.
USB 2.0 Interface
is transferred from a Six Pack to the host computer by means of an
ultra-fast USB 2.0 interface. Image data
can be transferred from the image memory array at a rate of 480
Megabits per second (Mbps) or 60
MB per second. A three-foot long USB cable is included with each Six
Pack. This may be used to connect the unit to the host
computer or to another Six Pack.
Six Pack contains an extension socket for "Daisy Chaining" a
second Six Pack when
using these devices with a
Micro-MCA 12 imaging system. Alternatively, the Daisy-Chain
socket may be used to connect the Six Pack to the micro-SD memory
card from an ILS or e-ILS unit. The e-ILS memory card should be
installed in the daisy chain connector using the micro card SD USB
adapter that is included with the ILS or e-ILS unit.
Six Pack includes one LED adjacent to each
memory slot. Each LED illuminates when an inserted Micro-SD Card memory is
The Six Pack
is supplied with an external 2.0 Amp 24 watt power supply.
This is connected to the Six Pack by means of an external 12 VDC Center Positive
Power input jack. The power supply's beefy 24 watt power rating enables
it to easily handle the standard 16
GB micro SD cards supplied with Micro-MCAs. With more than 3
watts allocated per memory slot, the Six Pack handles most
micro SD cards with higher
storage capacities as well. Check your
card's power rating to be sure.
