EXTREME1 Specifications
The EXTREME1 records 2.23 seconds of an analog signal within a range of 0 Hz through 230,000 Hz, and will convert and store this signal as 16-bit by 1-Meg data words.  Any signal within zero and five Volts, and  within this frequency range, will be free of NYQUIST imaging.  The EXTREME1 utilizes 32-times oversampling and digital filters, as well as analog filters, to provide NYQUIST Image-free recordings up to 230 KHz.  Bridge excitation (+5v reg. @ 30 mA) is provided.
