IX-408/IX-416 - 8/16 Channel Data Acquisition

Product Summary

The IX-408 and IX-416 data recorders are an economical, high performance 8 or 16 channel data acquisition system for use with a broad range of analog amplifiers.


  • 100KHz 16 bit A/D converter (aggregate)
  • USB interface to any Macintosh or PC
  • LabScribe2 software included
  • Low noise
  • Compatible with electrophysiological applications

The IX-408/IX-416 data acquisition systems from iWorx offers 16-bit resolution at a maximum bandwidth of 100 kHz, making it appropriate for most research applications.

The included LabScribe2 software allows 'one-click' control of the entire acquisition process, plus a large library of standard analytical functions to process data. The IX-408 and IX-416 are powered via a USB interface to any Macintosh or PC, eliminating the need to install special interface cards. Users are typically recording and analyzing signals within minutes of installation.

The IX-408/IX-416 recorders use a 16-bit A/D converter to sample data over its full input range of +/-10V at speeds up to 100kHz. The low noise (<1mV) greatly reduces the need for gain and offset.

LabScribe2 Software Provides Powerful Analysis Tools
Installation and operation of the LabScribe2 acquisition and analysis software is easy and straightforward. It supports real units and a time based display that is not coupled to sample rate. The display can be configured to allow viewing of as many data points as the user desires. Scrolling, zoom-in and zoom-out tools, together with a searchable list of user interventions, make finding important areas of data easy.

LabScribe2 provides a powerful array of built-in data analysis tools. It strikes a balance between the straightforward, general operations that everyone uses and the vertical, complex routines that only you use. The result is a powerful analytical tool that can go to work on your data right away, or be customized to do very specific and complex analyses.

Exceptional Value
The IX-408 recorder provides turnkey continuous recording solutions at a fraction of the cost and complexity associated with systems requiring PCI bus plug-in cards. No breakout box is required, as connectors are part of the enclosure. In fact, no other hardware is required to get up and running.

System Requirements
The IX-408 recorder requires a minimum Pentium II or Celeron level 500MHz computer running Windows ME, 2000, XP or VISTA with at least 1 GB of RAM, at least 1 GB of free space on the hard drive, and 1 free USB port.
