proAmp-8 8-channel Programmable Preamplifier

Eight-channel Programmable Bioamplifier

proAmp-8
Product Category: Amplifiers
Part No.: 20-01000

The proAmp-8 is a versatile eight-channel amplifier suitable for biopotential recording or transducer signal conditioning. Each primary channel features a wide gain range, sharp cutoff low-pass filters, and independent high-pass (coupling) settings for the (+) and (-) inputs. A built-in notch filter can be set for 50 or 60Hz. Pushbutton auto-zeroing removes small output offset voltages, and can be applied to one channel or all eight simultaneously. 

In addition to eight primary amplifier channels, there are two audio channels. These audio channels are independent, and can be set to monitor any of the eight primary channels as well as an external input. The audio channels can function as straight amplifiers (with adjustable baseline thresholds), or as VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) signal processors which produce varying tones proportional to the input signal.

The proAmp-8 can be operated as a completely stand-alone instrument, or remote-controlled using the available proAmpComm software. In stand-alone mode, all amplifier settings made using the front panel controls. Eight standard input cables are included. A variety of electrodes and lead-wires is also available, including high-impedance headstages. A UL and CE listed external low-voltage power supply is supplied.
