UltraSoundGate Player 116

part # 70111
# 70112
Ultrasound playback interface with integrated D/A converter, power amplifier, USB 1.1 interface, playback software and transport case. The UltraSoundGate Player 116 can be bus-powered in order to avoid an external power supply. For maximum sound levels, an external power supply (12...36V DC) can be attached. The trigger input (TRG) allows to start the playback by an external switch or TTL signal. The digital output (DOUT) can be used for instance to synchronize the playback with physiological data recording systems.
