Sensor Assembly for NEW Hi Tech Domes and PC Boards

New dome design features internal PC board mounting ridge.  This allows the PCB to be potted in place, providing a lower profile than 2-piece domes.

PC board snaps into place.  (the PC board pictured is for reference only.  The new PC board we sell is here.)

The PC board is now potted in place with clear epoxy resin.  This picture shows a "gun sensor" with machine screw installed prior to potting.

Here is the sensor PC board potted in place for a head/vest sensor harness.

An adhesive velcro patch is added for easy attachment to headbands, hats or vests.
