Thanks to Ken, I received a length of the extrusion that was shown and discussed in the thread introducing the new line scanning sensor. Along with the extrusion, I ordered the sensor, Prop Proto Boards and the Hydra EtherX Ethernet card (no hydra, going to use it with a "bare" prop).
Comment for Ken and others at Parallax:
The EtherX card is JUST barely too "thin" on the width dimension to be held in the extrusion. To really maximize the utility of the extrusion, especially if offered in lengths other than specifically for the Motherboard, it would be nice if other sensors and cards like the EtherX could be adjusted to fit the extrusion. Another example of a products that could possibly benefit from some "adaptation" would be the Ping[noparse]:)[/noparse]) sensor and even the Prop Stick.
As always, this opinion, and $1.00 will get you a bottle of pop from the machine in our break room.
