1. State-of-the-art programmable logic
logic circuitry (PLC) engineered into the new MSAS-Professional
allows for lower voltage operation which increases battery life by
300%. The circuitry is fully self-calibrating, yielding a
consistent reading throughout the voltage range of the battery. In
addition, the PLC makes it possible to easily upgrade its
functionality without the need to replace the circuit board in the
device. With the programmable logic circuitry found in the MSAS-Professional
device, it is truly a state-of-the-art device unmatched in the EAV
2. Industry-leading 3-year warranty on
all electronic circuit boards.
Because it is
designed with state-of-the-art circuitry, the MSAS-Professional is
the only EAV device in the marketplace that carries a full 3-year
warranty on its electronic components, which includes all six
circuit boards within the device. This is 300% the coverage of

Control (CNC) milled aluminum case.
is enclosed in a lightweight durable aluminum case, which is
precision milled to ensure a consistent polished look. Aluminum
acts as a shield to emissions - virtually eliminating sporadic
signals resulting in more accurate & consistent readings. The case
was designed with a professional appearance to match other medical
equipment found in the practitioners' office.
4. Modular IMAG technology in the MSAS
The new modular
design of the MSAS-Professional device integrates the Interactive
Meridian Assessment Guide (IMAG) into the base unit, creating a more
convenient and user-friendly one-piece device. The IMAG module is a
cylindrical unit that fits into the accessory dock compartment of
the MSAS-Professional device. The MSAS software controls the IMAG

device is automatically powered up when the test plate is opened and
resting on the tabletop. By integrating the power switch into the
foldout test plate, the practitioner only uses battery power while
testing with the device, thus conserving battery life. It also
prevents the unit from accidentally being powered on while
transporting. For larger substance containers, the practitioner
can use the devices' lid as an additional test plate (over 60 square
6. Standardized off-the-shelf battery.
powering the MSAS-Professional is a standard off-the-shelf camcorder
battery which is easily found at any electronics store. This allows
for ready and inexpensive replacement of a faulty or damaged
battery. In continuous operation, the standard battery will operate
for over 12 hours while an extended-life battery delivers nearly
twice that time.
7. Sleep mode.
device goes into sleep mode if it is dormant for 15 minutes. This
feature is designed to prevent accidental battery drainage from
leaving the unit powered on. To restart the device from its sleep
mode, simply close and re-open the test plate.
8. AcuPoint II probe with built-in
ships with two probes: the basic probe and the AcuPoint II probe.
By using sound feedback, the AcuPoint II probe is designed to help
new testers quickly locate acupoints.
9. Fully enclosed storage area.
A fully enclosed
storage area under the lid of the MSAS-Professional is convenient
for storing the battery, probe, and handmass. The storage area has
two foam interchangeable cradles accommodating both the handmass and

right and left sides.
offers a choice when attaching the probe and handmass to the unit.
Each attachment can be plugged into the ports on either side of the
device, thus contributing to an ergonomic testing environment. The
plugs are clearly labeled and color-coded - red for the probe, and
gray for the handmass.
