SuperLab troubleshooting

If you are not seeing a signal from SuperLab in AcqKnowledge, please follow these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Make sure the measurement computing card is set up properly.
    • Use this SuperLab Support link.
    • Most importantly, make sure your I/O card is board number 0.
  2. Confirm that PB7-PB0 map to digital channels 8-15, respectively.
    • Note the reversed order.
    • When getting started it is best to simply record on digital channels 8 to 15 (enable all of them) and see where the pulses come in.
  3. Click Start and then choose MP menu > Manual Control and click both “Read” buttons.
  4. Make sure the sample rate is fast enough to see the pulse.
    • For example, if pulse width is defined as 1 msec in SuperLab, the sample rate should be at least double (1 sample every 0.5 msec), or 2000 Hz in this case.

Cardiac Output amplifier

NICO Smart Amplifier

The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]

NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
