Low profile powered commutator for twist-free tethers, allowing subjects to exhibit more natural behavior and unencumbered movement
Features geometrical reconfiguration from traditional stacked slip rings to concentric tracks. Results in a drastically lighter and more compact design – simplifying overhead mounting.
Supports all Neuralynx buffered and MUX headstages, and tethers, with appropriate input adapter.
- 16 to 160 channels (1 to 5 headstages)
- Motorized with micro-torque tether rotation sensor
- Low profile ceiling mount
- Through-bore cannula for optical fiber or fluid delivery
- Easier to install
- Sealed against dirt and dust
- Lower initial cost, plus upgrade option for adding signal channels without purchasing an entirely new commutator
Brackets for ceiling or behavior cage top mounting – attached to commutator by Neuralynx prior to shipment. Brackets can be inverted for ceiling mount applications.
- 17mm Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ)
Up to 17 mm Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ) top mounting brackets for optogenetics experiments.
- 29mm Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ)
