g.TRIGbox

Highlights

  • Simply use PowerPoint™ for stimulus/paradigm setup and presentation
  • 1.5 kV isolation between trigger inputs and outputs
  • Use various trigger sources from visual, auditory, electrical or tactile stimulators
  • Interfaces with g.MOBIlab+ or g.USBamp
  • Use one encoded trigger channel for up to 16 different experimental conditions
  • Compatible to many other user-specific systems

The g.TRIGbox is a device to generate trigger pulses from various sensors or input signals. For your's and participants safety the input and output lines are isolated from each other.

The trigger outputs can be connected to a data acquisition system (such as g.Recorder or g.MOBIlab+) or to the input sockets of g.USBamp biosignal amplifier. Thus, g.TRIGbox provides an exact detection and recording of almost any type of stimulation in your experimental paradigms.

It's wide range of possible input signals and sensors allows the use of various trigger sources such as sound card outputs, microphones, piezoelectric or inductive sensors, response buttons, various logic signals (TTL, C-MOS, ...) provided by external stimulators, visual markers from the computer monitor, LED indicators, flash lamps or slide projectors.

The threshold levels are adjustable separately for each channel. 4 LEDs indicate the proper detection for each channel. The output signals are rectangular pulses with a minimum length of 20 ms assuring a reliable recording of all events even for low sampling frequencies. An additional analog encoded trigger output enables the recording of up to 16 different experimental conditions. For this case the output signal displays 16 different output voltage levels to be decoded during data analysis (e.g. with g.BSanalyze).
