The Most Precise and Versatile Eye Tracker
The EyeLink 1000 Plus is the world’s most precise and accurate video-based eye tracker, sampling binocularly at up to 2000 Hz. It is also the most flexible and customizable eye tracker, with multiple mounting options, interchangeable lenses, and multiple head free-to-move remote configurations.
- The EyeLink 1000 Plus eye tracker has outstanding with low spatial noise and high sampling rates, in both and head free-to-move .
- Choose from a range of camera mounting options – , , , and .
- Fast, accurate and reliable eye tracking across a wide range of populations – from infants through to elderly participants and even non-human species.
- The EyeLink 1000 Plus smoothly integrates with SR Research Experiment Builder, Data Viewer and third-party software and tools including E-Prime, Presentation, MATLAB and Psychtoolbox, etc.
The Core System comprises the EyeLink 1000 Plus Camera, a Host PC, and Response Device and requires one of the mounts described below:
- The standard Workstation Host PC is perfect for the laboratory.
- Real-time binocular eye movement data are processed, recorded, and returned to external devices via an Ethernet link and/or analog voltage at up to 2000 Hz.
- Our unique camera technology operates in distinct head stabilized and head free-to-move (remote) modes.
- Fast, accurate and reliable eye tracking across a wide range of populations and research scenarios.
- Includes a millisecond accurate response device.
- For a more portable system consider the EyeLink Portable Duo or contact us to discuss other Host PC options for the EyeLink 1000 Plus.
Choose a camera mount that best suits your research needs. Additional mounts easily extend the functionality of your system.
- The Desktop Mount sits below the tracked area and is perfect for traditional screen based eye tracking.
- Typically operates at a range of 40-70cm, so no electronics need to be near the participant’s head, making it perfect for research involving EEG or TMS.
- Supports unique Head-Stabilized and Remote head free-to-move modes.
- The Tower Mount is ideal for touchscreens, close distances, or for research that requires eye movements to be tracked over large degrees of visual angle.
- The EyeLink camera views the eye from above via an infrared hot mirror, leaving the space in front of the subject unoccupied and extending the binocular trackable range to 60 degrees horizontally and 40 degrees vertically.
- Contact us to learn about customized Tower Mount solutions for writing / drawing research.
LCD Arm Mount
- The LCD Arm Mount is perfect for working with infants, toddlers and patients, as well as participants in difficult-to-record positions.
- The easily-positioned hydraulic arm holds an LCD monitor (with speakers) as well as the EyeLink camera.
- The entire eye-tracking apparatus and display can be easily moved into place in front of the participant.
- The LCD Arm Mount supports unique Head-Stabilized and Remote head free-to-move modes.
- For Non-Human tracking, the Primate Mount holds the camera and an infrared illuminator in a compact, out of the way bracket.
- An infrared reflecting hot mirror approach accommodates a wide range of unique viewing setups with wide visual angles within very small space requirements.
- Use the Desktop Mount for mirrorless operation.
Long Range Mount
- The Long Range Mount is designed for applications that require the optics to be up to 150 cm from the eye.
- For further details see our fMRI and MEG Systems page.
Remote Camera Upgrade
- For eye-tracking research where head stabilization is not desirable, but high accuracy and resolution are still required.
- Ideal for research involving EEG, TMS, or for use with infants, children, and special populations.
- Consistent binocular/monocular tracking at up to 1000 Hz.
- Average accuracy is ~0.5 degrees.
- Compatible with Desktop and Arm Mounts.
- Choice of lenses allows a range of headbox sizes.
SR Research Head Support
- Extremely sturdy, high-quality chin and forehead rest, suitable for use in any behavioral research laboratory.
- The chin support can be adjusted in depth for extra comfort and better head positioning.
- Use just the chin rest (e.g., for EEG experiments in which you want to avoid putting pressure on the frontal electrodes).
- Use just the forehead rest (e.g., for tasks involving speech production).
Stimulus Presentation Hardware
- We can provide preconfigured high-performance display hardware for the most demanding experimental tasks.
- We carefully measure audio and visual stimulus delivery times and provide highly optimized Display PCs with known timing properties.
- We also provide fast LCD Displays (up to 240Hz) that have been timing-tested and confirmed to have accurate vertical refresh capabilities – perfect for gaze-contingent research.
- The Black Box ToolKit Response Pad (left) and the Millikey Button Box (right) are both millisecond accurate.
- Each is recognized as a USB keyboard, so can be used with any operating system or programming approach.
- Both have arcade-style buttons with clear caps that can be removed to place your own information beneath.
- The Black Box ToolKit Response Pad is available in two different 5 button layouts (W and V).
- The Analog Output card is intended for research settings in which digital gaze data cannot be accessed over the ethernet link.
- It provides analog output of X and Y position data and pupil size.
- Data is updated every sample (up to 2000 Hz).
- Programmable range between +/- 10 volts.
- Analog breakout board with BNC connectors.
- All EyeLink systems come with a lifetime of free technical support.
- Support members include former faculty and Ph.D. graduates in Cognitive Neuroscience, Vision Science, Psycholinguistics and Experimental Psychology.
- We have expertise in all aspects of eye-tracking research and outstanding technical knowledge of EyeLink hardware, software, and integration.
