Electrophysiology, Simplified.
1 System Overview
The NAN to Omnetics Adapters provides an interface between NAN Microelectrode Arrays and
a Blackrock’s Omnetics Headstages. The Omnetics Headstages provide recording of distortionfree spikes and local field potentials from high impedance microelectrodes. The headstage
provides an isolated low-impedance output that guarantees signal integrity, minimizes noise
pickup by cables and ensures maximum common-mode noise rejection by the Cerebus system
front-end amplifier. Figure 1 below shows an application overview of how the NAN to Omnetics
Adapters fit into a complete Neural Recording System.

**NOTE: The Omnetics Headstage, Neural Signal Processing System, and NAN Microelectrodes are not
included with the NAN to Omnetics Adapters and must be purchased separately.

3 Assembly
1. Turn off all power to the Neural Signal Processing System before making any
connections.
2. Plug the Omnetics Headstage into the Omnetics connector on the adapter. Date codes
(Omnetics xxxx) on the Omnetics connectors should be facing the same direction.
3. Connect the pins on the adapter to the NAN electrodes.
CAUTION: Risk of static electric shock
4. For further information regarding use of the Omnetics Headstage and Neural Signal
Processing System, refer to their individual instructions for use.
4 Warning
IEC60101-0102
Danger of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
 In order to reduce the likelihood of ESD, use antistatic or electrostatic discharge (ESD) safe
gloves when connecting the Adapter.
 Do not touch any exposed electrical conductors when the Adapter connector is attached to
devices on the subject’s head as this may result in inducing electric charge to the neural
tissue. Irreversible damage may occur.
