easyMATRIX3 for telemetry & analog inputs
easyMATRIX3 reads signals coming from telemetry implants (emka easyTEL and DSI implants, including recent HD models) and any type of non-telemetry signals and record them in real-time and continously in IOX2 software.
For rodents equipped with easyTEL analog implants or for subjects equipped with DSI implants*, the conversion is done through the easyMATRIX3 device, placed between the receiver and the computer.
easyMATRIX3 simply connects to your existing telemetry receivers and to your computer through Ethernet. Therefore, an add-on A/D acquisition card is not required.
Up to 4 easyMATRIX3 connect to a single computer and a single easyMATRIX3 connects up to:
- 16 telemetry receivers (1 to 4 telemetry receivers per implant)
- 8 analog signals: biopotential electrodes (ECG, EEG, EMG) amplified by easyMATRIX3, analog signal already amplified, strain gauge transducers powered and amplified by easyMATRIX3.
As it contains its own ambient pressure transducer, no need of an external ambient pressure reference monitor. As it records fully calibrated data from DSI implant with iox2 software, OpenART is not required either.
A perfect synchronization between telemetry implants and analog signals allows combining, for instance, pleural pressure from implant and respiratory flow from head-out plethysmography for precise resistance & compliance measurement.
