Isolated Muscle & Nerve Stimulators

$1,330.00 USD

Software-controlled, constant-current stimulators designed to work with a PowerLab (purchased separately) for direct or field stimulation of in vitro tissue samples. Additionally, the isolated stimulator option can also be used for in vivo animal and human studies involving nerve and muscle stimulation.

Book a Demo

Overview

These are two software-controlled ADInstruments Muscle and Nerve Stimulators, which are designed to work with a PowerLab to provide a range of constant-current stimulations at a compliance voltage of 100 V. Depending on the stimulation requirements and protocols, both stimulators may be used for in vitro tissue (nerve, vessel, muscle) stimulation, where:

  • Stimulator HC is ideal for field or larger current  in vitro stimulations, such as stimulation of larger isolated muscles
  • Stimulus Isolator is ideal for direct or smaller current in vitro stimulations, such as isolated nerve stimulation
    • also provides isolated stimulation, which allows in vivo nerve and muscle stimulation of animals and humans

Both stimulators are powered by their own Stimulator Power Supply (115/230V:12VAC) and controlled by LabChart software via two PowerLab connections:

Other independently controlled stimulators (purchased separately) are also available for use with PowerLab in other various applications, including:

Technical


Stimulator HC

Output

  • Connection type: Two 2 mm touch proof safety plugs
  • Output configuration: Constant-current stimulator with hardware limited repetition rate
  • Output waveform: Rectangular, monophasic pulses with software selectable pulse amplitude and duration
  • Isolation rating: 4000 V ACrms for 1 minute
  • Safety indicators: A single multi-color indicator displays the Stimulator HC status. A green flash indicates delivery of a valid stimulus. A yellow flash indicates an out-of-compliance condition (OOC).
  • Safety switch: Isolating On-Off switch flicks down to disconnect quickly
  • Compliance voltage: 100 V fixed
  • Current ranges: 1 mA, 10 mA, 100 mA full scale
  • Current rise time: <1 μs (100 Ohm load @ 100 mA) 25 μs (10 kOhm load@ 0.5 mA)
  • Current fall time: <1 μs (100 Ohm load @ 100 mA) 25 μs (10 kOhm load @ 0.5 mA)
  • Note: Rise and fall times are proportional to load resistance and capacitance.
  • Operating duty cycle: up to 20%
  • Resolution: 1% of full scale (10 μA, 100 μA, or 1 mA)
  • AC line leakage current: <200 nA p–p
  • Differential output noise: <1 μA p–p
  • Output capacitance: ~70 pF (without cable)
  • Power source: Non-isolated circuitry supplied by PowerLab via I2C connection. Isolated and high-voltage circuitry derives power from the external 12 V AC, 300 mArms, wall-plug transformer. High voltage isolation is provided by an internal isolation transformer. No batteries required.

  • Current rise delay: 22–45 μs (variable)

Control Port

  • I2C port: Provides control and power
  • Interface communications rate of ~50 kbits/s

Physical Configuration
