The motorized commutator or the slip ring commutator prevents the tethers from tangling and disrupting the experiment flow. This feature makes it especially suitable for free moving set-up – FMA. In cases that the cables are tangled to the point of influencing the animal movement the data from the experiment becomes Inaccurate and unusable.
Long-life Lithium batteries are crucial in lengthy experiments. The commutator is designed to reduce the amount of human supervision needed as much as possible, allowing you and your team to concentrate on the analytic aspects of the research.
