The receiver tray has BNC connections that easily connect to a BIOPAC data acquisition system or third-party devices capable of accepting signals within the ±5 V range; each channel requires one output cable. Use CBL123 for BIOPAC MP160/HLT or CBL102 for BIOPAC MP150/UIM.
Teflon insulated platinum electrode wires are 10 cm and can be truncated to desired length; custom longer lengths available on request.
This system ships with the default transmitter Gain setting; other Gain settings are available if requested before order is placed. AcqKnowledge software includes the scale settings for each transmitter Gain option.
Maximum Animal Size: 1 Kg. Additional sensor transmitters can be ordered individually.
Receiver Tray Specifications
Operating Temperature: 30-45ºC
Maximum Tray Dimensions (LxWxH):
Pup (cage attached): 188 mm x 188 mm x 160 mm (7.4″ x 7.4″ x 6.3″ )
Mouse: 345 mm x 210 mm x 21 mm ( 13.6″ x 8.25″ x 1″ )
Rat: 429 mm x 216 mm x 21 mm (16.9″ x 8.5″ x 1″)
Note: We do not recommend recording from pups with an adult receiver because the recordings will have more noise compared to recording from pups with the pup receiver, particularly if the pups are very immature (i.e., before weaning). Also, the larger rat base will be much harder to isolate in a temperature-controlled environment, which is highly recommended for pup recordings.
Activate Sensors When You’re Ready to Use Them
Transmitters are shipped deactivated and must be activated within 6 months of shipment to ensure the full active battery-life. Add the Sensor Activation & Test Utility (EPOCH-ACTI) to start the sensor battery when ready to use the transmitter.
- The reusable activator is battery operated and can be used for any sensors that are ordered as deactivated.
- Deactivated sensors require that the user has an EPOCH-ACTI on-hand or includes one in the EPOCH order.
- The activator utility can also output two independent channels of data (sinewaves) for testing purposes.
Add SleepSign for Animals (SSA100W) for complete sleep data analysis.
Use Camera Systems (CAMSYS4 or CAMSYS8) to monitor and record protocols and animal behavior. Recorded video will be time synchronized to the physiological signals in AcqKnowledge for easy investigation of key areas of interest.
