UltraSoundGate Player 216H

part # 70117
# 70118
Ultrasound playback interface with two integrated D/A converters, power amplifiers, USB 2.0 interface, playback software and transport case. The UltraSoundGate Player 216H 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 outputs (DOUT) can be used for instance to synchronize the playback with physiological data recording systems.
