The lightest, smallest multiplexing headstage available, the HS-16-MUX digitizes analog neural signals on the headstage to reduce tether cable wire count, weight, size and system cost.

2 differential stimulation channels. LEDs for behavioral tracking. Latch option for added retention. 

Combine analog & MUX headstages in Digital Lynx SX. Digital Lynx 4/16SX upgrade supports MUX headstages

Video Tracking LEDs:

  • HS-LED-Blue-3.3V
  • HS-LED-Red-3.3V
  • HS-LED-Green-3.3V
  • HS-LED-IR-3.3V: infrared
Tether Extension Cable (TETH-XTN-MUX) is required for use with Saturn Commutator, connecting the Saturn to the Digital Lynx SX-M.

On-head digitizing systems that integrate directly into Digital Lynx SX-M.  

Five channel configurations (16 to 128) are available, with one thin tether for up to 64 channels.

Its light weight and small size make HS-16-MUX ideal for use with mice and other small subjects.

  • Combine analog and MUX headstages in the Digital Lynx SX    
  • LEDs for behavioral tracking
  • Latch option for added retention 
  • Lowest price point to use Cheetah software - ideal for secondary systems or start up labs!

The standard Digital Lynx SX (4SX and 16SX) can be upgraded to support the MUX headstages.  Contact sales@neuralynx.com for details.
