Z03 EMG Preamplifier
|Z03 - A surface preamplifier with a x300 gain, designed for EMG signals
Featuring a differential input design, the unique design of the Motion Lab Systems EMG preamplifiers enables researchers to produce high-quality, low-noise EMG data from subjects under the most adverse conditions (e.g. on treadmills, using mobile phones etc.) with minimal skin preparation or subsequent signal processing.
This preamplifier, with x300 gain, is plug compatible with the BIOPAC TSD150 Series Active Electrode for surface EMG recording when ordered with the 005 connector option (RJ11 jack).
The Z03 EMG preamplifier has been designed for ease of use and reliability and provides superb performance in day to day use, as well as in the hands of the researcher or first time user. Unlike other EMG preamplifiers, Motion Lab Systems preamplifiers incorporate both radio frequency interference (RFI) filters and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection circuitry resulting in an extraordinarily reliable EMG preamplifier that can be used in almost any environment.
- Direct EMG pre-amplification at the skin surface provides the highest myoelectric signal quality for accurate, reliable EMG signal detection and eliminates cable motion artifact.
- Internal RFI and ESD protection prevents radio frequency interference and static damage.
- The low-impedance output of the preamplifier eliminates cable noise and cable motion artifacts without requiring any additional signal processing within the preamplifier.
- An integral ground reference plane provides immunity to electromagnetic environmental noise.
- All signal and power conductors in the preamplifier cable are enclosed inside an independent, isolated shield to eliminate interference from AC power-lines and other sources of interference.
- All subject contacts are corrosion-free, medical grade stainless steel for maximal signal flow.
- Constructed using bio compatible housing and sensor materials to prevent allergic reactions.
- Each unit is professionally built in using high precision surface-mount instrumentation components for optimal EMG performance.
