Analog Input Box (AIB) (Including 8 channels)
The Analog Input Box (AIB) is an extra option to acquire additional analog input signals which have to be kept isolated from the subject. For example mains powered equipment. Up to 32 channels can be acquired simultaneously with up to 256 channels from the AD-box connected to the subject.
A first fiber carries the data coming from the subject connected AD-box to the AIB, then a second fiber with the combined data goes from the AIB to the receiver where the total 288 channels are processed.

Respiration belt

Respiration belt SleepSense 1387-kit. Using a piezo-electric crystal, the respiration effort sensor converts chest or abdominal respiration movement to clear, reliable respiration waveforms.

Galvanic Skin Response
With this ActiveTwo accessory, the impedance of the skin can be measured. The GSR exists of 2 passive Nihon Kohden electrodes to induce an oscillator signal synchronized with the sample-rate. Because the BioSemi GSR uses "Lock-in detection", the stimulus-current can be as low as 1uA. The low-current and synchronized oscillator ensure that the biopotential measurements (ECG,EEG,EMG) are not corrupted by the GSR oscillator signal. The GSR input can be mounted on the front of the AD-box when a system is ordered, or at a later stage.

Active strain gage
BioSemi can equip your force transducers with a miniature (15x30mm) precision strain gage amplifier. This makes your strain gage Active, the output signal is processed by the ActiveTwo AD-box just like any other active sensor. The advantages are that all influences of the connection cable are completely eliminated, no cable interference and no temperature drift. The Active strain gage contains a low-noise, low-power, zero-drift, chopper-stabilized differential amplifier. The power supply is from the ActiveTwo AD-box (16mA total bridge current). The modification to the Active strain gage can be performed for quarter, half and full bridge strain gage configurations. The supplied LabVIEW module automatically zero's the bridge and amplifier offset on startup. No further hardware trimming is necessary. The photo shows a precision force measurement for finger pressure, the amplifier is sealed in resin on the left side of the ergometer.
 
Note: The Active strain gage connects to the Ergo input.

Jazz eye tracker

The Jazz eye tracker system is a development of a Polish academic research group, led by Prof. Ober. A special 'synchronic' version has been made on OEM basis for BioSemi for interfacing directly with the ActiveTwo. The synchronic Jazz system consist of 3 building blocks:
- Head mounted eye-tracker.
- Transmitter with twin fiber-optic connection (data out, sync in).
- Receiver with direct connection to BioSemi USB2 receiver.

The sample rate of the Jazz is perfectly synchronized with the ActiveTwo sample rate. The Jazz receiver connects to an optical input/output on the BioSemi USB2 receiver. Our LabVIEW acquisition software combines the ActiveTwo data and Jazz data, the Jazz channels are available simply as extra channels in the resulting BDF file.

 
More info about the Jazz eyetracker can be found in this .pdf file.

Response switch (optimal response timing and subject isolation)

Response switches for direct connection to the Ergo input or Switch input on the AD-box.
These response switches ensure accurate timing of the response moments (pulse is mixed directly with the incoming EEG signals) as well as optimal isolation of the subject (no grounded equipment near the subject). Using the USB trigger port also has good timing, but has the disadvantage of bringing the safety grounds near the subject. Under Windows, it is advisable to only use the PC keyboard (ActiView: function keys F1-F8) for none time critical responses because Windows OS is not a real time operating system. There is no fixed timing relation between incoming data through the USB port (EEG data) and signals coming from the keyboard (subject response). The timing relation between the USB port (EEG data) and the keyboard (subject response) can not be determined precisely under Windows.
The BioSemi Response switches connected to the AD-box will make sure your response timing is accurate and your subject isolation remains optimal !

Response switch only. EUR 75,-

Daisy chain (Optical input on AD-box)
AD-boxes can be daisy-chained for simultaneous synchronized measurements on 2, 3 or 4 subjects. When AD-boxes are equipped with Daisy chain inputs, then they can be connected by optical fibers: Box1 --> Box2 --> Box3 --> Box4 --> USB-receiver plus computer.
Because the AD-boxes are only connected by optical fibers (each system has its own battery power supply), the systems and subjects remain completely galvanically isolated form each other (optimal interference suppression and safety). Distance between the subjects can be up to hundreds of meters.

The sample rate of all systems is synchronized. All signals from the 2, 3 or 4 systems are processed in a single computer, and stored in a single file. In daisy chain mode, the systems can be used with a maximum of 128+8+sensors per system on 2 kHz sample-rate: Speedmode explanation.
We do not support coupling systems for measurements on a single subject. The reason is that signal quality may suffer when montages are made that contain channels from different AD-boxes (channels from one AD-box subtracted from channels in another AD-box). Optimal signal quality is achieved when all ADCs refer to a single continuous ground-plane on a single mother board.
