Tethered Recording Systems

Tethered headstage of choice throughout the Neuroscience community. 1:1 channel to wire ratio. Single headstages and total solutions available .

Our T-Series tethered headstage systems are capable of acquiring and filtering up to 32 individual signals, with a 1:1 channel to wire ratio. However, we recommend the M-Series amplifier systems for tethered applications requiring very high channel counts and minimal wiring.

All T-Series recording headstages provide a compact and reliable connection to your electrodes. These headstages interface perfectly with our data acquisition equipment, but they are also adaptable and can output analog data directly to other amplifier systems.

You may choose to integrate these products with an existing data acquisition system or as a total solution package with everything you need to get your project started, including data acquisiton hardware and software. The tethered headstages are available with your choice of gains 2, 20, 100, and 1000. The default headstage connectors are 25 or 50 mil Omnetics, and we frequently accomodate custom connectors.
