Module Extension Cables

DA100C or B-Series Amp to 2 mm
Part #: MEC100, MEC100C, MEC110, MEC110C, MEC111, MEC111C

Add lead length & protect your system

Module extension cables increase the distance between subject and recording system, allowing increased subject movement and comfort. Each 3-meter extension cable attaches to one amplifier; electrodes and transducers plug into the extension cable’s molded plastic input plug. Includes a clip for attaching to a subject’s belt loop or clothing. MEC series extension cables contain no ferrous parts (less the removable clothing clip).

Compatibility


Use MEC110C or MEC100C when you simply need to increase the lead length to the amplifier.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: The MEC100 series is not to be used on humans when they are undergoing electrosurgery or defibrillation. In fact, no BIOPAC equipment should be connected to human subjects during the course of defibrillation or electrosurgery.

The MEC111C or MEC111 is required for the protection of your MP System and Biopotential amplifiers when electrocautery or defibrillation equipment is used while recording data.

There are passive protection circuits built into MEC111C. These protective elements are designed to protect the biopotential amplifier from damage, assuming heart defibrillation pulses are introduced to the monitored subject. The MEC111C design incorporates 10 kohm series resistance elements, on each conductor, that also terminate in a transient absorber. With this design, potentially harmful defibrillation pulses are suppressed prior to encountering the biopotential amplifier input.

All other cables support direct point-to-point wiring, and incorporate no active or passive protective components.

When using MEC110C with EBI100C or NICO100C, the mapping of port function to color is as follows:

I Out: Brown
Vin+: Red
Vin: White
I In: Green

(I In) also galvanically ties to amplifier ground; the GND ground (Black) port on the MEC110C is typically ignored in this application.

Mobita Advances Prestimulus EEG Research

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
