The Biopac Science Lab MP40 unit connects to the computer via Line-In.
Important—Audio line-in is not the same as headphones. Typical audio line-in connectors are shown below for Windows and Mac:
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 NIBP100E noninvasive blood pressure system provides continuous, beat‐to‐beat, blood pressure signal and values (Sys, Dia, MAP) and Pulse Rate (PR)*. The NIBP100E amplifier with CNAP™ technology is controlled by AcqKnowledge software (v5.0.7) for MP160 Research Systems. The system outputs a continuous blood pressure waveform that is similar to a direct arterial pressure waveform. The amplifier […]
