CABLES & CONNECTORS
The following accessories will replace channels typically used for neural recording on the headstage. Installation of these features will increase the headstage's length by 0.4 inches, its height by 0.2 inches, and its weight by 0.4 grams. The biosensor options can be installed in any combination.
Compatible with W-Series, M-Series, and T-Series
Cables & Connectors
We supply a wide variety of Omnetics brand connectors and cables. Though our headstages typically use Omnetics connectors, they have been tested for compatibility with various other connector brands. Please notify us if you wish to use a connector brand other than the standard and we will try to incorporate it into your headstage.
All of our recording and stimulation solutions include standard cables and tethers, but we can also accommodate individual orders for customized cables. Just give us the details about your desired pinout and cable length and we'll take care of the rest.

If you require extra battery life for longer experiments, you have the option to replace the standard internal 4 hour battery with one of our 12 hour or 25 hour external battery options. Using an external battery also helps relieve weight from the animal's head, but it must be stored in a rat jacket or other garment. We also offer wireless power options.
External Batteries are available for W-Series and S-Series
A harness is recommended for securing external headstage components, such as a battery, onto the back of a rat or mouse.
