Ultra-Sensitive Startle Enclosure


Get the best response with our new thin wall startle enclosure.  This new enclosure is 4X as sensitive as the original enclosure. The thin wall provides less obstruction between test subject and sensor providing a clear response for low weight animals.

The rubber feet eliminate the docking cups needed for metal feet enclosures removing the need for the base platform.  By placing the enclosure on the floor of the cabinet variability of response is reduced.  The enclsoure connects and calibrates the same as the old enclsoure making it an easy transition to upgrade.


Win XP Obsolete after 2018

Systems running on Windows XP systems will no longer be supported after 2018.  Contact us to get a quote to upgrade your system. sales@sandiegoinstruments.com

We are sorry to say but do to technology advancements we will no longer support any XP or older systems. Windows stopped supporting XP in 2014 and some IT departments are requiring the removal of such computers.

So what does that mean:
San Diego Instruments will no longer trouble shoot systems running on XP, keep in archives old manuals, nor provide replacement installation disks for any software that runs on XP.

Also, any PCI Interface cards (found in our older SR-Labs) will no longer be sold as the manufacturer is no longer producing them after September of 2018. If you have one, hold onto it!

Please call us or email us to discuss options below. 858-530-2600 or sales@sandiegoinstruments.com
