BCX ULTRA - Features and Specifications - Return to Main Page -

The new BCX Ultra replaces the BCX 211 & 411 with greatly improved BCX technology at the same price as the older version.The BCX has been totally upgraded and improved making the BCX Ultra the most advanced Instrument in its field. The BCX Ultra now has more power and greater harmonic resonance and includes all the same accessories. The new control interface offers a wealth of information, including built-in operating instructions that are viewable on the LCD screen. BCX Ultra comes with a 60 Day Money Back guarantee and a one year warranty for parts and labor. Features include the ability to modulate a healing frequency over a carrier frequency. This output can then be pulsed (gated) for more effective penetration.

Duty Cycle - adjustable in single digit increments from 1 to 100%. The default duty cycle for the BCX Ultra is set at 90%. Many popular electronic devices such as various 'Zappers" use a duty cycle of 50%. The duty cycle represents the actual time duration or - ON - time for the flowing electrical energy within a pulse cycle. It is believed that a higher duty cycle is beneficial as it delivers more of the actual frequency information to the body during a set period of time. There are other points of view that feel a lower duty cycle is preferred in order to enable the nervous system to integrate the frequency information. This is why we provide a user-adjustable range so you can decide what is appropriate for various circumstances.

Gating Frequency - this is a method of pulsing the entire frequency and wave form output on and off at a rate of 56.2 Hertz. To better understand this, let us say you are running a manual frequency of 1028 Hz. with a squarwave output. In order to improve the frequency penetration and adaptation response, this frequency output package is again "chopped up" into output segments at a rate of 56.2 Hz. You are still getting your desired frequency. It is just being bundled up and pulsed out at this other rate. Gating or pulsing the frequency bundles was deemed important by Rife.

Glass Tubes Frequency Range - 1 to 100,000 Hz. modulation frequency (plus the frequency harmonics) Note: the carrier frequency for the glass tube applicators is preset at 44,660 Hz. but can be manually adjusted from 1 Hz. to 100,000 Hz. When using manual entries, any adjustment to the carrier frequency over 100,000 Hz. will apply only to hand held electrodes or footplates. Glass tubes also have alternating polarity. When one tube is positive the other is negative, switching back and forth.

Metal Cylinder Electrodes Primary Frequency Range - 1 to 4 million Hz. (4 MHz.) Manually adjustable. The upper range of 4 million Hertz can only be accessed by selecting the square wave form on wave form choices
* Metal Cylinder Carrier Waves - from 100,000 Hz. to 4 million Hz. adjustable in 100 Hz. increments
