These are self-sensing cantilevers with a hard, sharp, long-life single crystal diamond tip (SCD). The cantilever is delivered on our cantilever PCB (CL-PCB) with a small 10 pin connector on its bottom side.
This cantilever type can come with or without an integrated heater. PRSA (Piezo-Resistive Sensing & Active) cantilever probes are equipped with an additional thermal actuator (heater structure) on the cantilever. PRS (Piezo-Resistive Sensing) cantilever probes provide the sensing Wheatstone bridge (without a thermal actuator).
