The Wilson Lead Amplifier Module (WLA) is used for capturing and amplifying unipolar ECG chest lead potentials after Wilson lead configuration in the PLUGSYS system. Up to 6 chest electrodes (V1 to V6) can be connected.

IMPORTANT: Correct recording of the Wilson unipolar chest electrode potentials requires the central reference signal (Central Terminal Point, CTP) which is formed from the bipolar extremity leads after Einthoven. Using the WLA therefore requires the EGM module Type 701 which provides the CTP signal. The necessary link between the two modules is provided by the input box.

The WLA module has isolated input amplifiers in order to avoid hum interference. In this way the inputs are isolated electrically from the output circuits and from the housing. The six output voltages of the different chest leads can be switched through jumpers to the PLUGSYS system bus. From the system bus they can be picked off by a ROM module for direct recording or a DAQ Hardware PLUGSYS for data acquisition by computer. A square-wave calibration generator with a 1 mV amplitude is incorporated for calibrating the amplitudes.
