- Capable of logging data without a computer, the Foxbox Respirometry System can store 8190 lines of data for later export during field work.
- With 2 analog inputs, the Foxbox allows the user to connect additional instruments (e.g., water vapor or temperature measurement devices) to incorporate into the data output stream.
- Standard in our analyzers, barometric pressure compensation eliminates errors caused by ambient pressure variation.
- 3 year warranty
The FoxBox Respirometry System is a field portable combined oxygen and carbon dioxide analysis instrument including a variable pump and mass flow meter integrated into a compact, dustproof, waterproof case. Equally at home in the lab or the field, the FoxBox is the core of a complete respirometry system.
The FoxBox can be ordered in a number of configurations, including as O2 only and with a rechargable Li-ion battery pack. Optional ExpeData data acquisition software allows simple analysis of respirometry data. The Foxbox Daemon translates the serial data stream into an ExpeData file.
