The Configurator System combines both the configurator hardware and ConfigSoft software to allow the wireless configuration and pairing of Kaha rat telemeters and their SmartPads and Kaha mouse telemeters and their tBases.
The system allows you to:
- Change/configure the transmission frequency of the SmartPad or TBase
- Change/configure the transmission frequency of the telemeter
- Run Diagnostics on telemeters, SmartPads and tBases
- Place rat telemeters into Safe Mode (power-down to conserve battery power when away from a SmartPad or when being stored)
- Enable/disable Cohousing on SmartPads
Only a single Configurator System is required for each laboratory and it is NOT required during data acquisition. Existing Configurator hardware in use with Rat Telemetry Systems can be used with the Mouse Telemetry System however a firmware and ConfigSoft software upgrade may be required.
ConfigSoft telemetry software is part of the Configurator System, which is used to wirelessly control and configure telemeters, SmartPads and tBases. Using ConfigSoft allows 100% control of the telemeters and SmartPad and/or tBases and therefore reduces handling of the animals and associated stress, it is all done through the software. The software also collects and outputs telemeter, SmartPad and tBase diagnostic information and manages their settings. The channel numbers of the Kaha Sciences Telemetry system tell the components (telemeters, SmartPads and Configurator) which frequencies to communicate on.
ConfigSoft also allows you to select from up to 40 independent transmission or receiving channels, this ensures these no crossovers, data loss, or interference between different telemeters and receivers.
