Our Powered Slip Ring (PSR) commutators allow tethered subjects to move freely without the tethers twisting by automatically rotating to compensate for subject's movement.
The PSR-36 (-2, -3 & -4) includes 32 recording channels, 4 references, 4 stimulus channels and 4 power lines, allowing for up to four headstages per commutator (128 channels).
Signals travel from the commutator to the Digital Lynx SX data acquisition system via the ether extension cable (TETH-XTN-XX). The adapter (ADPT-HS-36-PSR-36) is included.

Optic sensor measurement is used to automatically rotate the slip ring to eliminate excess torque on the subject's head, so the animal subject is more comfortable, and the possibility of headstage disconnect is greatly reduced.
