Founding developers Dennis Kätzel and Sampath K.T. Kapanaiah

The Open-Mac Commutator was developed by Dennis Kätzel and Sampath Kapanaiah, from University of Ulm in Germany. Their aim is to provide an economical solution that will address several concerns when doing experiments like: animals bite-damages to the expensive cables, twisted cables when it winds up to the animal’s head and non-motorized commutators that have very little torque which is not sufficient to turn the commutator.
