• Respiratory Rate Meter with a wide range: 3 breaths/min to 150 breaths/min • Suitable for all species from mouse up to large animals The Respiration Rate Module is used to calculate respiration frequency (rate) in the range from 3 to 150 breaths per minute from any signal reflecting it (respiratory airflow, thoracic excursion signal, nasal airflow temperature signal, etc.). The input signal is provided either from a PLUGSYS Preamplifier Module (e.g. Bridge Amplifier (TAM-A, TAM-D with repiratory belt or a Carrier Frequency Amplifier (CFBA) with a differential pressure transducer and a pneumotachometer connected) via the PLUGSYS bus system or from a PLUGSYS external preamplifier over the external input on the front panel.
