Giga-8d, Basic EPG System

Basic EPG system* (commodity code 90 27 80 99)

Basic EPG system. this includes all items needed to get started, except electrode wire*:

  • Giga-8d control unit (2017 series, AD converter build-in)  1x
  • EPG probe, pre-amplifier (see also note**)  8x
  • DC adaptor, power supply 220/110 VAC - ± 6 VDC 1x
  • Swivel clamp (to mount an EPG probe to the mounting rod)  8x
  • Mounting rod (to mount 4 EPG probes)  2x (can be screwed to one rod)


  • USB cable (to connect the Giga-8d to the computer)  1x
  • Plant electrode  8x
  • Grounding cable (for Faraday cage connection)   1x
  • Test cable (see Giga-8d manual)   1x

Wiring kit  (except electrode wire*)

  • Insect electrode pin (brass, Ø 1.2mm)  30x
  • Extension wire (copper, Ø 0.2mm) bunch  2x
  • Electrode glue, water based (vial 2 ml, Ag 25%) 2x

* electrode wire

      should be added to the quotation list manually ('separate consumables') to the Basic the EPG system. Choose the right diameter:

  • Either:   - Coil 18 µm diameter (30m; for aphids and bigger insects) 1x
  • or:         - Coil 12.5 µm diameter (30m; for smaller insects. e.g. whiteflies etc.) 1x

** Note: New option 2017: Probe with normal to emf mode switch. In emf mode plant potentials can be measured more accurately (see menu option Measuring Systems). To quote/order this option use "Other items" additionally.

Other requirements such as Stereomicroscope, Vacuum device and Faraday cage are not provided by EPG systems: see downloads for construction hints).

Computer: Windows (XP, 7, 8, 10) or Mac with bootable Windows environment
