Details

AlphaComm-I is a motorized commutator that senses and tracks rotations induced in the tethers connected to an animal in a free moving set up. This ensures that the tethers are free of entanglement while the animal moves in the arena.
The slip ring commutator is a user-friendly & state of the art motorized commutator solution that supports both neural recording and stimulation (optical and electrical) and seamlessly interfaces with the Intan based systems. AlphaComm-I ensures an ultra-quiet environment for recording due to superior electrical shielding. The commutator is powered by a Lithium-ion battery that lasts at least 6 hours on one charge. It charges by DC 5V power. No computer interface is required for operation.

Features and benefits of the motorized commutator

• Supports 8-64 channels
• High-resolution sensing 
• Ability to control speed and sensitivity
• Compatible with optogenetics (up to 4 fibers)  & liquid tubes
• Allows electrical stimulation up to 16 channels
• Compatible with a variety of arena sizes and  shapes
• Allows Impedance check
• Simple and stable mounting mechanism
• Ergonomic design and ports layout

The motorized commutator is ideal for

• Free moving rodents
• Long session experiments
• Recording and stimulation (electrical/optical)
• advanced electrophysiology setups 
with external connections (liquid tubes/sensors)
