Compatibility Notes

  1. Requires a Motion Detector Cable to connect to a DIG port on the interface
  2. Sensor does not auto-ID; manual setup is required.
  3. Requires a BNC electrode
  4. This software cannot apply digital filters to EKG data.
  5. Requires a Heart Rate Receiver to connect to an interface
  6. Requires an additional signal source, such as LabQuest 2 running the Power Amplifier app or a computer running the Power Amplifier Function Generator Software, to control the Power Amplifier output
  7. Requires a Gas Pressure Sensor
  8. Software does not support baseline adjustment.
  9. Currently shipping Thermocouples (Model: TCA1816R3) use a calibration type not supported with this software. Older models of the sensor are fully supported. No software update is planned.
  10. Use with an electrode such as a pH Sensor, Conductivity Probe, or ORP Sensor.
  11. Requires manual setup of meter and data columns for resistance and power data
