The LE 100-26 is an electric shock generator used in a wide variety of Panlab apparatus for assessing behavior in laboratory animal.
The shock is generally applied to the bars of the floor grid of the Experimentation Cages. The electric shock is made of rectangular current pulses switching consecutively over 6 bars (scrambler). Current is isolated with respect to ground, as a basic safety precaution to avoid electrical interference with other equipment. The output current depends entirely on the value selected by the user and not the resistance of the animal or the number of bars it is touching when it receives the electric shock, thereby ensuring that the repeatability of the electric shock is maximized. The time duration of the electric shock is also adjustable.
