7006 - Isotonic Transducer

Isotonic Transducer Isotonic Transducer

With the 7006 Isotonic Transducer it is possible to carry out experiments on extremely small and fast muscle fibres, which can be held under a tension of as little as 100-200mg so that minimal force and consequent displacement alterations can be recorded. Perfect for very fast contractions!

With the 7006 Isotonic Transducer it is possible to carry out experiments on extremely small and fast muscle fibres, which can be held under a tension of as little as 100-200mg so that minimal force and consequent displacement alterations can be recorded. Perfect for very fast contractions!  

The 7006 Isotonic Transducer basically consists of a carbon-fibre lever arm which pivots on the shaft of Hall effect rotary motion transducer of original design. The arm is balanced by an adjustable counterweight of tungsten alloy.  
 
The lever arm balancing is provided by a tungsten alloy counterweight which can e shifted by turning its knurled section. 

This load is monitored by the counterweight rim moving along a scale calibrated in grams.

    Before ordering, check the connection compatibility of your amplifier/recording system.

    The Isometric & Isotonic Transducers are normally supplied with a connector designed for Ugo Basile Data-Capsule-Evo Recorder (see datasheet).

    If the customer wishes to make use of other recording apparatus, the transducers can be supplied with appropriate connectors on request: we will be glad to provide transducer with different connectors, if available, or to provide wiring information and instruction.
