It is possible to validate the signals coming from any DA100A/B/ or C amplifier by using a CBLCAL* Calibration Cable. The cable connects to the front of the amplifier and the UIM100C Analog Output 0 or 1, or to a known signal source in the ± 10 V range. Create a stimulus signal using AcqKnowledge and monitor the output of the amplifier that the CBLCAL is connected to. The CBLCAL will attenuate the output signal (1/1,000), and the amplifier will amplify the signal by the gain setting.
For example, if the stimulus signal is 1 V and the gain setting is 1,000, the corresponding signal from the amplifier should be 1 V. The signal can be used for amplifier validation and signal calibration.
If the signal is significantly different than the source signal level, contact BIOPAC for further assistance.
* Note: Most other amplifiers require CBLCALC, not CBLCAL.
New series of unshielded 45 cm electrode leads with thin cable; suitable for facial EMG and other areas where lighter, shorter lead cables are required. Use for female Touchproof connectors to pinch clip connectors—connect electrodes to either a C-series amplifier or an MEC. The pinch connectors are light weight and the lead cable tinsel wire […]
