Output power: 12mW/770nm, 12mW/840nm (Max) on the surface of light-emitting part
2) Light-receiving part
APD (Avalanche photo diode) Equipped with 6pcs of them.
3) Number of channels at simultaneous measurement
14、16 or 17 channels (Expandable to 34、37、51 and 57 channels)
4) Distance between light-emitting part and light-receiving part
5) Length of Sensor cable
6) To be used by mounting to Sensor palette (sold separately) prepared for each measurement region.

Note: OEG-17H has been developed for the whole-head measurement, however please note that there still might be the case where the whole head could not be measured depending on the subject.


Spectratech OEG-17H main unit (In basic configuration)
1) Measurement method of biological signal
By Modified Lambert-Beer Law
3 kinds of hemoglobin change signals     Unit: mM・mm
Oxy hemoglobin change ΔCoxy ・ L (or ΔCo ・ L)
Deoxy hemoglobin change ΔCdeoxy ・ L (or ΔCd ・ L)
Total hemoglobin change ΔCtota l・ L (or ΔC ・ L)
Note: To express each hemoglobin change, it is expected to use ΔCo ・ L, ΔCd ・ L, and ΔC ・ L as standard in the future.

2) Optical multiplex modulation method
Modulation method: Spread spectrum modulation DS (Direct Sequence) method Note 1
PN CODE: M-sequence code
Effective biological signal bandwidth:
(1) Fine Mod: 0.76Hz (Sampling interval: 0.65535 sec)
(2) Fast Mode: 6.10Hz (Sampling interval: 0.08192 sec)

3) Event input function
A manual event trigger can be input (with LED to confirm the acceptance) at an optional time using the accompanying Spectratech OEG-16-05 BOX for manual event trigger input.

4) External trigger input function
(1) It is equipped with 2 systems of the photo-isolated “External trigger input terminal” to operate together with the external device. It is connected to the external device via the optional Spectratech OEG-16-04 BNC cable, and can be used with both the external event trigger input and the external measurement/record start trigger.
Input condition: TTL level (Photo-isolated by photo coupler in the main unit) Note 2
(2) It can be input from other PC via the network (use of UDP protocol).
How to use from the network is described in §10 of Software edition in detail.

5) Input function of general-purpose analog signal
It is equipped with 3 channels of the general-purpose analog signal input which can be measured together with the biological signal (hemoglobin change signal).
It is convenient to measure simultaneously with sphygmograph and thermometer, etc. which has an analog signal output function.
Input voltage range: 0 to +5V (High impedance input)
Number of input channels: 3
Resolution: 12 Bit
Sampling interval: Identical to the biological signal’s sampling interval
(0.65535 or 0.08192 sec)

6) Measurement time
Continuous measurement for about 2 to 6 hours depending on the number of measurement channels.

7) Connection with PC
It is connected with PC with the network function (100M-ethernet) via the network, on which Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 is running. Installing the accompanying Spectratech OEG-17APD-07 application software makes it possible to output various commands, send the measured data to the PC, and record or display it.
For the use, please select a PC with Intel I5 CPU or above, 8GB main memory or above, and a monitor in resolution of 1368 x 768 or above.

8) Battery equipped
For the photo isolation part:
CR2032 Lithium battery (Continuous operation for about 3-5 years)
For the internal calendar clock:
CR2032 Lithium battery (Continuous operation for about 3-5 years)

9) The latest firmware can be downloaded from our website as needed.

Note 1: The DS (Direct Sequence) method is one of the spread spectrum signal generation methods, called direct diffusion method as well, and modulates by using the random numbers called spread code sequence (PN sequence). In addition, there is FH method (Frequency Hopping) method.
Note 2: TTL input means +3 to +5V digital signal input at high impedance.
