DSI PhysioTel® Receivers – RSC-1 for Specialty Applications

The RSC-1’s small design accommodates a variety of specialized cage configurations and can be placed in many locations where the RPC-1 and RMC-1 receivers are too large. Examples include metabolic cages, running wheels, treadmills, etc.  The RSC-1 reception range and other performance characteristics are comparable to the RPC-1 receiver.
