EVANSVILLE, Ind., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTC-BB: ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging light-weighting leader and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., today announces that LeddarTech, owner of the patented Leddar™ optical detection technology, includes ElectriPlast material to produce lens barrels in its latest release of its LeddarOne Sensing Module, a compact and low-cost lidar that provides valuable presence detection and distance measurement capabilities to a wide range of finished products.
This single-element sensing module is particularly suitable for applications such as level sensing, drone altimetry, security and surveillance and proximity detection, just to name a few. The LeddarOne's focused, yet conic beam offers excellent overall range and performance.
"We are delighted that ElectriPlast was selected as the light-weight material molded to produce lens barrels for the cutting-edge LeddarOne," says Doug Bathauer, President and CEO, Integral Technologies. "Committed to discovering and developing lightweight and conductive alternatives to metal, our ElectriPlast conductive resin materials feature the ruggedness and conductive properties of metal with the advantages of plastic. Our ElectriPlast materials are lighter, moldable, and lower cost, with the patented technology to create solutions for various industries30 while ensuring high performance and the latest technology."
"Leading edge sensing applications, such as the use of the LeddarOne as an altimeter for drones, require the sensors to be optimized in key areas such as weight, cost, and robustness. The lens barrels produced by ElectriPlast contribute to meeting these stringent requirements," adds Pierre Olivier, VP R&D at LeddarTech.
