LICKOMETER COUNTER WITH DIGITAL DISPLAY

Model 86063

Lickometer Counter with Digital Display
 
   
 

DETAILS

The Lickometer Counter Model 86063 provides standalone operation with a 12V power pack with battery backup and an LCD display. When battery backup power is required, battery life is two days.  The digital display shows the total number of animal licks. One counter is required for each active sipper tube in a suitable Lickometer Chamber. The input circuitry features a 22 M Ohm input that is sensitive to subject resistance up to 30 M Ohm at subject currents less than half of that produced by other contact lickometers. This unit is sensitive to lick rates up to 50 Hz, with firmware filtering to provide individual licks at a rate of 8 Hz even if the animal holds the sipper tube in its mouth.

The Model 86063 must be connected to a computer via an 86056A Interface with 86065 AWM Software support to obtain more data than just total counts like the Model 86062 Lickometer Counter. This connection may be made with either 86051-7 or 86051-14 Modular Cable.  Each interface connects up to 15 counters.  A maximum of 8 interfaces or 120 counters may be connected to a single Windows PC with suitable USB hub.  Cables, Interface and Software are all sold separated. For larger numbers of lickometer chambers, the Counter Model 86062 for computer output only is a lower cost alternative and is recommended.
