The Programmable Pulse Generator Module (PPG), in combination with a MS-Windows compatible computer, additional I/O hardware and the PPG control software,
forms a programmable stimulation pulse generator (repetition rate and pulse width). 

  • Stimulation mode free run or hardware triggered
  • Single pulse or train stimulation
  • Stand alone system with PPG control software
  • Fully supported and controlled by HSE-HA Software 

The stimulus outputs are TTL compatible and have a minimum drive capability of 4 standard TTL inputs. The complementary TTL pulse output offers both active high and active low pulse signals. Therefore the PPG can directly control up to four HSE UISO Universal Isolated Stimulator Outputs or any external stimulator output stage with TTL gating or trigger possibility.

The PPG is connected to the A/D converter and controller board of the computer via the DIM and its extension DIM-D. The DIM and the A/D board are connected by the data cable. The DIM-Module is installed on the rear side of the PLUGSYS mainframe, the PCI A/D converter and controller board is installed in the computer. The software installed on the control computer presents a menu to adjust the different stimulation parameters pulse width and frequency. These parameters can be stored on disk for later use. The PPG control software has to be recalled to make any changes in the stimulation parameters.

Software required (either)

73-3497 Programmable Stimulus Module for PSM and PPG Control

This module can control up to 8 PSM or PPG modules. For each module, basic rhythm, pulse width, output polarity and output current can be set individually. Train function is also selectable, train rhythm and train duration is applied to all modules. 

73-0024 Data Acquisition Software Control Module for PSM and PPG

This module controls the PSM or PPG through ACAD or ISOHEART Data Acquisition Software.
