The SmartPad is a receiver and charger in a single unit and will power and receive signals from any of our rat telemeters.
- Optimized to fit standard rodent cages
- Provides wireless recharging using patented inductive power
- Cohousing feature allows housing of two telemetered rats in one cage (requires two SmartPads)
- Receives digital telemeter signals
- Outputs signals as analog voltage for connection to any data acquisition system
The Configurator System combines both the configurator hardware and ConfigSoft software to allow the wireless configuration and pairing of Kaha rat telemeters and their SmartPads.
The system allows you to:
- Change/configure the transmission frequency of the SmartPad
- Change/configure the transmission frequency of the telemeter
- Run Diagnostics on telemeters and SmartPads
- Place telemeters into Safe Mode (power-down to conserve battery power when away from a SmartPad or when being stored)
- Enable/disable Cohousing on SmartPads.
Only a single Configurator System is required for each laboratory and it is NOT required during data acquisition. Existing Configurator hardware in use with Rat Telemetry Systems can be used with the Mouse Telemetry System however a firmware and ConfigSoft software upgrade may be required.
ConfigSoft telemetry software is part of the Configurator System, which is used to wirelessly control and configure telemeters and SmartPads. Using ConfigSoft allows 100% control of the telemeters and SmartPad and therefore reduces handling of the animals and associated stress, it is all done through the software. The software also collects and outputs telemeter and SmartPad diagnostic information and manages their settings. The channel numbers of the Kaha Sciences Telemetry system tell the components (telemeters, SmartPads and Configurator) which frequencies to communicate on.
ConfigSoft also allows you to select from up to 40 independent transmission or receiving channels, this ensures these no crossovers, data loss, or interference between different telemeters and receivers.
