Background

Our USB response pad is competitively priced and exceeds the specifications of any other response pad currently on the market. It appears to your experiment as a standard USB keyboard where a button or vocal response registers as a standard key press. What's more every button press or vocal response also produces a TTL event mark or TTL trigger!

1-8 button USB response pad with voice key pricing


We are confident we have a response pad for you. If the standard 4 or 8 button response pad layout doesn't meet your needs you have the option to choose your own button colors and locations. For custom orders you will need to request a formal quotation.

All response pads ship with a USB host lead and a headset with mic is also included so that voice key responses can be accepted. You have the option of adding a 8-way TTL lead which allows 1-8 buttons to each produce a unique TTL signal for the duration of each button press. Alternatively add a single shot TTL lead which produces a 50 ms wide 5 V TTL trigger when any button is pressed or a vocal response is made.
