Designed in consultation with the Institute of Sound and Vibration University of Derby England, this Isolation Chamber has an inner dimension of 505 x 440 x 485mm and provides a controlled environment for sound and light.
Available in 7 standard sizes, our chambers are coated to resist corrosion and are fitted with a panel mounted ventilation fan and air inlet with cable entry points. Custom sizes are also available with a design charge.
Ergonomically designed for ease of animal handling and welfare with a ventilation fan and optional rolling shelf, these chambers can be configured with a house light, speaker, and camera observation/recording system that uses visual or IR illumination.
Audible transmission measurements were performed on sound pressure z-scale. Attenuation level ensures that sound between chambers is attenuated to around 35 DB which approximates to the background noise in a quiet room. Additional baffles can add 5-10 DB of further attenuation and also eliminate light ingress at the ventilation apertures. All sound attenuation levels are frequency dependent.
White LED House Light and Speaker: The LED provides a more concentrated area of illumination than a standard tungsten bulb and has a nanosecond illumination time.
Spyhole Lens: Observation chambers can be fitted in the middle of the door or with a camera for either visible or IR light (please specify your requirement). The camera image can be viewed on screen directly or by use of a video quad processor or quad DVR suitable for Windows™ files.
Rolling Shelf: Simplifies animal handling - especially useful for tethered animals.
Faraday Cage: A metallized lining with EMC gasketed door will attenuate external sources of electromagnetic interference to provide a clean electromagnetic environment for physiological recordings.
Easy-install Rack System (for multiple chambers): The density of sound attenuating materials means that each chamber can weigh approximately 33 to 40 kg. Mounting these on a moveable rack with braked wheels gives many benefits such as easy handling, laboratory cleanliness, and safety. All cables are installed in trunking and a top shelf includes a central power distribution point and earth bonding. If taller chambers are required for special designs, or if space is required between the upper and lower chambers, a further wall-fixture option is also available.
