The product in question is our high power marker. It looks like one of our standard markers, except it's blue. It plugs in to our standard drive boxes, but it flashes three times as brightly (see our High Power marker page).
The product has two clear advantages. Three times as bright means:
- An instant three time improvement in the signal to noise ratio. Any wobble you may have seen in measured marker positions, especially as you move further away from the CODA sensor unit is instantly reduced by 3x.
- The marker remains visible at least 1.7 times further away from the CODA unit. This represents a huge increase in the available measurement volume seen by a CODA unit. It's a cube law, so in theory your measurement volume is increased by a factor of about 5.
