Physiological recordings can be easily contaminated by noise and interference. In many cases, high electrode contact impedance is a big part of the problem. Noise often appears as 50 or 60 Hz "hum" from surrounding AC-powered electrical devices or as erratic spikes due to any motion of the lead wires. In virtually every case, these troublesome artifacts can be mitigated or completely eliminated by reducing contact impedance at the skin/electrode interface. UFI's Checktrode™ applied electrode contact impedance testers are designed to help accomplish this task.Model 1089 MkIII Checktrode
The UFI model 1089 MkIII Checktrode supplies quick and easy evaluation of total contact impedance and offset voltage between two applied electrodes, and has been on the market for decades. The 1089 uses an AC excitation method which removes the effects of the polarization errors from the impedance reading. Leads with both the older .080" pin plugs as well as the newer .060" sheathed safety jacks are supported. The inclusion of a standard male snap allows electrode lead testing as well. A loaded battery test function is also provided.
