The Biopac Science Lab MP40 unit connects to the computer via Line-In.
Important—Audio line in is not the same as headphones.
If a computer does not have a built-in Line-In jack, an external audio adapter can be used.
BIOPAC Systems, Inc. has reviewed five external sound adapters. All of the reviewed adapters are compatible with the MP40 unit, but their ease of use and signal quality vary. The reviewed audio adapters have the following specifications in common:
Interface with a computer via USB port
Retail for approximately $70.00 or less
Plug and play with default drivers on Microsoft OS/Mac OS and thus do not require an installation procedure or proprietary driver.
Performance differences are detailed here to help users make an informed choice based on their needs.
The RSP Respiration Smart Amplifier is specifically designed for recording signals from a respiration transducer for direct physical measurement of respiratory effort. The amp works with the transducer to measure abdominal or thoracic expansion and contraction while breathing and permits DC coupling for the recording of respiratory effort signals of arbitrarily low frequency. BIOPAC’s new Smart […]
BIOPAC provides researchers with a complete range of tools to gather data on heart rate variability (HRV). The following studies demonstrate just some of the ways in which HRV research benefits from the implementation of BIOPAC hardware and software solutions. PTSD and HRV Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been associated with dysfunction of the autonomic […]
