The Environmental Control Unit (ECU) is a powerful system for controlling and recording behavior. It is compatible with peripheral devices, such as lights, levers, beam breaks, lasers, audio cues, solenoid pumps, and synchronization signals from third party hardware.
- 5V power supply
- Mounting L-brackets
- 19″ rack mount
- USB cable
- 1′ HDMI cable to MCU
For continuous full-sampling rate data streaming to Trodes, must be used in conjunction with MCU. The ECU can be used as a standalone system to control and log events using StateScript to generate a text-based readout of events.
