Adapter & Accessory
Probe adapters, system adapters, accessories that help you make the most use from the X-Headstage and XDAQ.
How do I attach/detach the adaptor to the X-Headstage?
See "Handling the X-Headstage"
Why are there two types of adapters (vertical design vs regular) for the same probe connector?
The regular adapter is designed with minimal footprint in mind. The vertical design moves the X-Headstage higher away from the skull and allows more space to pack in more implants.
Can I purchase a longer HDMI cable?
We recommend keeping the cable as short as possible to maintain optimal signal quality. If the HDMI cable is sufficient for the behavior experiment, hook up the acquisition system with a computer close the animal, and Remote Desktop into the control computer could be a way to increase distance. Alternatively, if the animal needs to cover a bigger space and thus needing a longer cable, contact us for a custom solution.
How much do the adapters weight?
Here are the weight of the adapters excluding adhesives
Install and Using Short Analyzer
Short Analyzer is a powerful tool to troubleshoot your neural probes. Short circuit could occur during the electrode manufacturing, plating process or after electrodes have been implanted for extended period of time. To use the Short Analyzer, simply power it using a USB-C power and data cable. It can be used as a stand alone device and the onboard LED status light will indicate if there is short circuit detected in the system. To begin, press the Test Button and activity light will flash
