INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the BC Biomedical Model PLA Pacer Load Adapter. The PLA works
with the BC Biomedical Defibrillator/Pacemaker Analyzer to provide a range of simulated patient loads for
transthoracic or external invasive pacemakers. A total load resistance of 50Ω, 100Ω, 300Ω, 500Ω, 600Ω,
1000Ω, or 1500Ω may be selected to meet the requirements of various pacemaker manufacturers.
The PLA includes:
•
1 protective electrode cover (black)
•
1 banana test lead (red)
•
1 adapter, 2mm female to 4mm male
•
1 adapter, 4mm female to 2mm male

WARNINGS
CAUTION:
Discharge of high-energy defibrillator pulses through the PLA will damage the PLA load
resistors. The PLA is designed for a maximum RMS current of 50mA at any input. This is
equivalent to a rectangular current pulse of 200 mA, with a pulse width of 20 mS, and a
rate of 180 pulses per minute (3 pulses per second).
NOTE:
To calculate the RMS (the square root of the mean of the square) current in a rectangular
pulse waveform with a pulse amplitude of 0.2 A, a pulse width of 20 mS, and a period of
333 mS: The square of the amplitude is 0.2 * 0.2 = 0.04; the mean (average) of the
squared waveform over one period is 0.04 * 20/333 = 0.00240; and the square root of this
average is 0.049A.

OPERATION WITH DA-2000P and DEFIBRILLATOR WITH
TRANSTHORACIC PACEMAKER
Additional Equipment Needed:
•
2 alligator clips (P/N 48009)
•
1 (2mm-female to 4mm-male banana jack)
•
1 banana test lead
1) Attach the PLA to either paddle electrode of the DA-2000P, by placing it on top of the electrode. (See
Figure 1.)
2) Cover the other DA-2000P electrode with the black protective cover that is included with the PLA.
This cover is a safety feature, designed to limit contact with the exposed electrode.
3) Cut the two pacer pads off the set of pacer leads from the defibrillator, and discard the pads.
4) Attach the two alligator clips to the two banana test leads.
5) Connect the alligator clips to the cut ends of the defibrillator pacer leads.
NOTE:
A more permanent set of test leads can be made by adding banana plugs to the ends of
cut-off pacer pad cables.
6) Connect one of the banana plugs to the desired load impedance on the PLA, and connect the other
banana plug to the other electrode (through the safety cover).
7) Follow the DA-2000P User’s Guide instructions for pacemaker testing.

Input Connections:
SPECIFICATIONS
Seven banana jacks provide input connections.
Inputs are labeled with the total load impedance
in ohms. The banana jacks mate with standard
size banana plugs (0.166” diameter by 9/16”
long).
Output Connections: The output of the Load Adapter connects to a
paddle input (electrode) of the DA-2000P.
Load Selection:
The load provided by the Load Adapter is
selected by connecting the input signal to the
appropriate input jack.
Load Impedance:
When the Load Adapter is attached to the DA2000P, the user is able to select an input load
impedance from the following values: 50Ω,
100Ω, 300Ω, 500Ω, 600Ω, 1000Ω, and 1500Ω.
The 50Ω selection is the load impedance of the
DA-2000P itself. The load resistances have a
tolerance of ±1%, a temperature coefficient of
±100ppm/°C, and low enough inductance to not
interfere with the measurements being
performed.
Enclosure:
The enclosure is made of a nonconductive
material. It connects directly to one of the DA2000P paddle inputs and covers the paddle
input to prevent accidental contact by the user.
