S-BOX_PZ5 - Amplifier Input Splitter

The S-BOX_PZ5 is a 32-channel passive signal splitter for use with the PZ5 Amplifier or PZA (Subject Interface) Amplifier. The splitter provides a simple and effective means of routing low impedance biological signals to both a TDT acquisition system and a parallel recording system.

Two DB26 connectors provide direct connection to a PZ5 amplifier and a single DB37 provides a parallel output connection. Bank letters as well as channel number ranges are labeled on all the DB26 connectors (i.e. Bank A Channels 1-16).

Important

The S-BOX_PZ5 is NOT FDA approved and is intended for use with the PZ5 Amplifier.

The S-BOX_PZ5 uses standard 1.5 mm safety connectors for electrode input. Front panel numbering of these inputs corresponds to TDT amplifier channels.

SBOX16 - 16 Channel Input Splitter

The SBOX16 is a 16-channel passive signal splitter for use with the PZ5 Amplifier or PZA (Subject Interface) Amplifier. It has a physical switch to optionally short ground and reference together.

The S-BOX_PZ5 uses standard 1.5 mm safety connectors for input from electrodes. Front panel numbering of these inputs corresponds to TDT amplifier channels.

It has the same pinout as the S-BOX_PZ5.

Important

If using with the IZ2 or IZV stimulator, make sure the switch is in the OPEN position.

Important

The SBOX16 is NOT FDA approved
