High Channel Count Headstages

The 64 and the 128 channel digital headstages from Plexon are now available. These headstages utilize novel Samtec connectors, which allow for small, compact, and light-weight packages. The novel connector design means smaller and cheaper electrode interfaces.

The Samtec connector compatible with the 64 channel headstage is available now on the N-form arrays and U-, V-, and S-probes. Plexon also offers an electrode interface board (EIB) for the Samtec connector, which can be used to interface individual wires or tetrodes to the headstage.

64 Channel Headstage

Description:

A 64-channel thumbtack design digital headstage with a Samtec connector interface. HST/64DS is also alternatively available
with on board red, green, or blue LEDs (in any combination) or with LED sockets for the ability to add LEDs in the future. Custom
electrode interface boards are available for HST/64DS.

Input Connector Information: Single piece Samtec connector #12

Note: The single piece Samtec connector requires no special alignment. The mating force with this connector is considerably
less than the combined Omnectics connectors, without sacrificing a solid and reliable feel.
