The analog output parameters comprise the scale factor and the offset. The scale factor corresponds to the physical unit per Volt (unit/V) output by the system, while the offset corresponds to the physical value at which the user wants the analog output to be at zero volt. For example, with a scale factor set to 10 °C / V and the offset set to 5 °C, the temperature as a function of the analog output voltage is given by:

Temperature = [Voltage output] x 10 °C / V + 5 °C

The default value of the scale factor is 50 °C / V (or its equivalent in °F) and the default value of the offset is 0 °C (or its equivalent in °F).

During a No Signal condition, constant values are output as follows: analog output value = 0 Volt,  RS-232  serial ports = 65 536.0.

For more details, please see the complete FOTS100 User Manual, available under the Support tab.

Use with high-accuracy, fiber optic temperature probes for use in MRI (separate purchase):

Rectal Temp Probe: 300 µm OD Polyimide tubing – TSD180 8 m or TSD182 3 m

  • The Polyimide round tubing protects the sensing element its flexibility and rigidity provide excellent pushability.

Surface Temp Probe: sensor 1 mm OD, PFA tubing 0.9 mm OD – TSD181 8 m

  • cable sheath rated up to 85 °C.
The glass tube at the end of the probe provides a robust protection over the sensing element as well as a firm connection from sensor to cable.

Note: FOTS100, TSD180, and TSD181 are suitable for MR field strength of 3T and lower; see FOTS200 with TSD380 and TSD381 transducers for high field strength MRI applications.

Eye Tracking Fundamentals

Eyes are the window to the soul and, more importantly, the brain. Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and consumer neuroscience researchers use eye tracking technology to understand emotion, behavior, subject response, decision-making, and human performance—and to help improve products and services. But not everyone knows where to start or how and why to use this important technology. A panel of eye tracking experts will present typical use cases and the latest eye tracking technology.

Join this online presentation with Q&A to learn the fundamentals of eye tracking!

Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
