Single Input Lickometer Counter
 
   
 

DETAILS

The Lickometer Counter Model 86062 looks like the 86061 Activity Wheel Counter and uses the same data collection software, however it has been specially designed for the purpose of monitoring licking behavior from a single sipper tube.  The input circuitry features a 22 M Ohm input that is sensitive to subject resistances 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 it's mouth. A Model 86051-7 Modular Cable is included. Interface and Software sold separately

The 80380 Triple lickometer test chamber is shown below with three 86062 Lickometer Counter conveniently hung from the chamber top frame.  Since counters are sold separately, you can order just the number needed for your particular task.
