TriggerBox  Software

This installation package includes the TriggerBox Test IO, the TriggerBox Configuration tool as well as the drivers required to connect to the TriggerBox Plus. It also supports the former version TriggerBox (no “Plus”).

The TriggerBox Test IO is helpful to verify the trigger connections in your setup. It allows you to set bit levels individually and manually or run an automatic sequence to see whether the triggers arrive as they should. More detailed information is available in the operating instructions.

To configure the Ethernet and WiFi settings for the LSL marker streaming as well as output bit settings for TriggerBox Plus, the Configuation tool is used. More detailed information is available on our newsletter article “Out now! – TriggerBox Plus streams any trigger via LSL” and in the TriggerBox Plus operating instructions.

Note: BrainVision TriggerBox Test IO requires Microsoft Visual C++ runtime. If this package is not yet installed on your computer, please download and install the redistributable (vc_redist.x86.exe for 32 bit or vc_redist.x86.exe for 64 bit) from this Microsoft webpage before using TriggerBox Test IO.

Note: TriggerBox Test IO is only compatible with TriggerBox revision 2 (released in September 2015) or later.
