A ribbon cable (100 cm) fans out in the cap to connect to each electrode. The other end of the ribbon cable has a connector that plugs into a mating cable (25 cm) which terminates in 19 Touchproof sockets. The connector arrangement permits the electrode cap to be easily disconnected from the recording amplifiers, allowing the cap to be fitted in one location and used in another. When the electrode cap is in place, EEG recording gel is injected into each electrode (via a central gel access hole) with a blunt-tipped syringe.
The CAP100C ships with a MEDIUM cap, but caps are available in four sizes: INFANT (45-50cm); SMALL (50-54cm); MEDIUM (54-58cm); and LARGE (58-62cm).
CAP100C is typically connected to inputs on the EEG100C Electroencephalogram amplifer.
- To connect to an MP3X data acquisition unit, add shielded electrode interface cable SS1LA.
- To connect to older model 100A-series or 100B-series amplifiers, add connection cable CBL201.
Wireless EEG recording options include the Dual EEG BioNomadix with BN-EEG-CAPSYS or the B-Alert X10 with AcqKnowledge for 9 channels of high fidelity EEG plus ECG, with optional Cognitive State Analysis software.
