The S13 interface is designed for use with DC strain gauge amplifiers with excitation of 3V DC or more. It supplies the Gaeltec Devices miniature pressure sensor with a drive voltage of 0.9V which protects the sensor from electrolytic damage while it is implanted. The unit has trimpot controls for adjustment of gain and zero and is supplied adjusted for the particular drive voltage of your amplifier.
Up to three S13 circuits can be fitted into one case. The case dimensions are 100 x 50 x 25mm. The transducer connection is via a high quality Lemo insert in a lighweight nylon plugshell on 2 metres of PVC cable. The monitor connecting lead can be bare ended or fitted at cost with a customer specified connector.
The S13 does not provide patient isolation. The monitor must be patient isolated.
