Seal

Displays input resistance during seal formation.


Zap is a parameter file which can be modified by the user. The scroll bar dynamically increases or decreases the amplitude of the signal. Pressing the cartoon button delivers the zap stimulus which hopefully will establish whole-cell configuration! If not, suck! One zap can be delivered automatically when a given seal value is reached, if auto is enabled. Settings in the ini file.


Display channel is selectable.


Enabling audio produces a repeating beep at a particular frequency set with the Hz up/dn arrows. The change in sound frequency (Hz/Mohm) is set in the text box. If you set thigs right you can hear a difference when the electrode touches the cell.


Upon reaching 1Gohm a sound can be played. The file must be named <giga.wav>, a Microsoft wav file, placed in the jclamp32 directory <sounds> subfolder.


In the <sounds> directory there is a file <no_sound.wav> that can be copied and renamed to <giga.wav> so that no sound is played.  jClamp now has a stand alone version of <jc_audio.exe> which can be used to record or play wav audio files, since Windows Vista does not have a sound recorder that does this. It is accessible in the jClamp directory or the jClamp start menu.


The time resolution of plot updates is the same as the History plot, which is set in the ini file, default 1 Hz.
