BrainAmp ExG

Solution for bipolar and sensor data acquisition

The simultaneous recording of EEG, bipolar as well as peripheral signals opens up new scenarios in the investigation of the mechanisms underlying for example emotional behavior. The BrainAmp ExG amplifier is a bipolar amplifier which can be used to record EMG, ECG, EOG and polygraphic channels such as GSR (Galvanic Skin Response), acceleration, temperature and blood pulse with an extremely compact design.

The BrainAmp ExG amplifier (16ch) is based on the same technology and design as the entire BrainAmp family and is therefore fully compatible with all the other members of this large family. All signals can be recorded with a sampling rate up to 5000 Hz and a broad hardware bandwidth ranging from DC to 1000 Hz. The ExG has been conceived as an extension to all the other BrainAmp amplifiers but it can also be used as a fully independent unit.

The ExG amplifier powered by a rechargeable battery, the PowerPack, and can be connected to a laptop allowing it to be used anywhere and for any type of recording.
