Reduced wiring in Smart Amp setups reduces ambient and common mode noise, increases comfort, and improves the group dynamic!
AcqKnowledge Smart Amp setup includes guides and prompts to prevent errors. Plus, channels are automatically set to be plotted and included in input values display, with the initial visual range set to the min/max input range for that Smart Amplifier signal type, in appropriate units.
The Smart Amplifier may be attached to the subject either using the included Velcro backed clip or optional self-adhering straps around the subject. The amplifier terminates with a 3 m long cable and connects to the AMI100D Amplifier Input Module.
Smart Amplifiers connect to an MP160 Research System via an Amplifier Interface Module (AMI100D); Smart Amps are not compatible with MP150, MP100, HLT100C, or MP36R devices. For output, add CBL237 with OUTISO or similar. AcqKnowledge Smart Amp setup includes guides and prompts to prevent errors. Plus, channels are automatically set to be plotted and included in input values display, with the initial visual range set to the min/max input range for the Smart Amplifier signal type, in appropriate units. AcqKnowledge 5.0.4 and above support Smart Amp functionality.
