Wasp Stimulation Electrode

£145.00£302.50 exc. VAT


  • For delivery of sharp painful stimuli
  • Concentric design with Pt pin
  • Compatible with Digitimer stimulators
  • Multiple cable/termination options



The Wasp electrode was specifically developed for use in electrical stimulation applications where a sharp painful stimulus needs to be delivered transcutaneously. The electrode has an outer ring of 6.5mm diameter, which surrounds an inner ring of 2mm diameter, that incorporates a 0.5mm high (±0.25mm) Platinum pin.

Each connection wire on the back of the electrode is Potted in Epoxy Resin which provides additional strain relief (giving more durable service) and ensures no contamination to the back of the electrode which may be possible when affixing the electrode to the subject with tape. The overall thickness of the Wasp Electrode once potted is approximately 3mm, but due to the manual construction, there could be some slight variation.

Cable and Termination Options

When supplied bare, the electrode (part code G.WASP) has two gold plated solder pads to connect wires. Great care must be taken not to overheat these pads, as this may dislodge the position of the Platinum Pin, which has a through connection to the top side of the electrode.
The Wasp electrode (G.WASP) may also be ordered along with a 2m long pre-fitted cable (Mini-Coax RG174) which terminates with three options:-
  • 4mm Touch Proof Plugs (G.WASP-CBL-4TP)
  • female 1.5mm DIN 42802 connectors (G.WASP-CBL-15)
  • Bare wire end cut flush (G.WASP-CBL)
If you require Wasp electrode fitted with a cable and 4mm plugs, you need to select the correct options so as to order one G.WASP and one G.WASP-CBL-4TP.
The 4mm connector option will plug directly into a Digitimer DS7A, DS8R, DS5, while the 1.5mm DIN42802 is compatible with products including our D185-HB4 output extension cable and D188 Remote Electrode Selector.


Please note, these electrodes will not be supplied with connection wires for use in an MRI environment due to specific safety considerations based on that environment. In this case, only the standard electrodes can be supplied for connection wires to be arranged locally.

Note that as Wasp electrodes are manufactured to order we are unable to accept returns.

The lead time is typically 2-3 weeks.
