What type of scanner or sensor is the zSpace pen using to interact with the the workstation?

What type of waves are being used to pinpoint motion, and what is picking it up? if i use an infrared emitter, would it cause problems or work as a separate controller.

zSpaces uses infrared cameras, so yes there's a good chance adding an infrared emitter could cause problems.  If you can position it that it does not interfere with the display and stylus (perhaps below the display) it may work - you'll have to test it.
