Modular Test Chamber with Non-Shock Floor

Model 80004NS


A modular test chamber that is identical to 80004 except for a perforated stainless steel floor that is not suitable for shock delivery. Compatible with all 3 inch wide modular panels! Shown with accessories.


Lafayette Instrument Company's newest edition to the operant conditioning test chambers boasts features not found in other chambers, yet is fully compatible with all 3 inch wide modular panels available from other manufacturers. A non-shock perforated stainless steel floor is supplied standard with this chamber.

See Model 80004 Modular Test Chamber in the RELATED PRODUCTS for the same test chamber with standard grid rod floor that could be shocked if ever needed. A separate grid floor (Model 80004RF) may also be added to this unit at any time.

Note: Model 80004NS is for the chamber and grid floor only. It does not include the chamber accessories, a control, or power supply. These items should be ordered separately as needed. We would be happy to assist with the design of a complete test system.
