IX-404 is an economical, general purpose data acquisition and analysis module for use with any analog amplifier. The recorder offers 16-bit data collection at speeds up to 10 KHz, providing acquisition speeds appropriate for most research applications. The included PVLOOP software allows “one-click” control of the entire acquisition process, plus a large library of standard analytical functions to process data. The IX-404 recorder is powered via a USB interface to any Macintosh or PC, eliminating the need to install special interface cards. Users are typically recording and analyzing signals within minutes of installation.
The IX-404 recorder uses a 16-bit A/D converter to sample data over its full input range of ±10V at speeds up to 10kHz. The low noise (<1mV) greatly reduces the need for gain and offset. When used with a standard x10 oscilloscope probe, ranges of ±100V can be monitored.
Pressure-volume loop in the PVLOOP software
The PVLOOP Software (ref. IX-404-PLV) provides powerful analysis tools.
Built-in PVLOOP acquisition and analysis software is easy and straightforward. It supports real units and a time based display that is not coupled to sample rate. The display can be configured to allow viewing of as many data points as the user desires. Scrolling, zoom-in and zoom-out tools, together with a searchable list of user interventions, make finding important areas of data easy.
PVLOOP software provides a powerful array of built-in data analysis tools. It strikes a balance between the straightforward, general operations that everyone uses and the vertical, complex routines that only you use. The result is a powerful analytical tool that can go to work on your data right away, or be customized to do very specific and complex analyses.
IX-404 provides turnkey continuous recording solutions at a fraction of the cost and complexity associated with systems requiring PCI bus plug-in cards. No breakout box is required, as connectors are part of the enclosure. In fact, no other hardware is required to get up and running.
IX-404 requires a minimum Pentium II or Celeron level 500MHz computer running at least Windows 98, with at least 128 megabytes of RAM, at least 10 megabytes of free space on the hard drive, and 1 free USB port. Internet connection is required for web updates.
