Focus V3 tES Device



V3 is currently on back-order. The new and improved tES device by Focus with tDCS, tACS, tPCS, tRNS and tRCS waveforms as well as blind and double blind placebo (sham) modes. Easy to use interface consisting of just a simple yet unique 4 way joystick. Built in LCD screen shows device settings. Small and portable, the V3 has a rechargeable battery and includes the necessary accessories to get started with tDCS right out of the box. Grab a Focus V3 to fully customize your neuromodulation sessions. The Focus V3 is CE marked.

The Focus V3 tES device features tDCS (Direct Current), tACS (Alternating Current), tPCS (Pulsed Current), tRNS (Random Noise) stimulation and an all new tRCS (Rippled Current Stimulation). Inside V3 is a 32Bit ARM® Microprocessor. Using advanced micro-electronics ensures accurate stimulation. Impedance changes can be detected and correct in 50 micro seconds. This means target current levels are super-accurate and super-stable. Only the best components were used in construction from such manufacturers as Texas Instruments, Seiko and Panasonic.

Rippled Current Stimulation

The new V3 features a rippled current stimulation (tRCS). tRCS is a dynamic tACS. The waveform ripples after the stimulation frequency as a function of time.

Accurate Stimulation

Inside V3 is a 32Bit ARM® Microprocessor. Using advanced micro-electronics ensures accurate stimulation. Impedance changes can be detected and correct in 50 µ seconds. This means target current levels are super-accurate and super-stable. Only the best components were used in construction from such manufacturers as Texas Instruments, Seiko and Panasonic. If you want the best, this is it.

Easy to Use

Getting started with is simple. The blue OLED digital display and 4-way joystick make light work of controlling your session. During stimulation you can see the exact session time remaining, the active current value in mA plus a real-time graph of the actual current.

Increase Peak Alpha

The dynamic frequencies entrain your brainwaves. The frequency shift then lifts entrained brainwaves higher.

Alpha Vision

Targetting the occipital lobe for increased visual awareness. See more with focus V3.

Time is Important

It is important not to mis-use electrical stimulation through over or repeat usage. That is why the V3 includes a real time clock. It will warn you if you try to start a stimulation session too soon after your last session. It also times and limits each session to the maximum recommended length of 40 minutes. You can also use the timer to start your session up to 12 hours in the future. This is useful if you want a session to start when you are asleep. All session logs are stamped with the time they were started for your convenience.

Small But Powerful was designed with the aim of being both small and powerful. V3 includes a 3 axis accelerometer. It provides raw data for X, Y and Z movements as well as slope detection, tap sensing, orientation recognition, g-force detection and inactivity sensing. This movement detection is used in the lucid dream program to stop stimulation when movement is detected. Weighing in at less than the battery found in some DIY stimulators yet generating an output 6x higher.

  • Current limiting circuitry and session audit logs

App Controlled Stimulation

V3 can be controlled via the Android app.

Focus V3 Available Waveforms - tRCS waveform image coming soon

Focus V3 tDCS Waveform

tDCS - transcranial direct current stimulation

tDCS mode current can be set from 0.1 to 2.0 mA for session durations between 1 and 40 minutes. Voltage can be also be controlled from 10 V to 60 V. Actual current is logged every 50 ms for an accurate record of the session. Featuring current ramp up and ramp down to make session start and end as comfortable as possible.

Focus V3 tACS Waveform

tACS - transcranial alternating current stimulation

tACS mode current can be set from 0 to 2 mA for session durations of between 1 and 40 minutes. Frequency can be set between 0 and 300 Hz in both unipolar and bipolar modes. A current offset between 0 and the target current can also be specified.

Focus V3 tPCS Waveform

tPCS - transcranial pulsed current stimulation

Set the duty cycle and frequencey for pulsed current stimulation sessions. You can set Sham to ON, and have no graph, or set sham to BLIND and the focus V3 will either show the real current graph or create a fake graph.

Focus V3 tRNS Waveform

tRNS - transcranial random noise stimulation

Randomize the current, the frequency or both and set the range boundaries for each. tRNS is becoming increasingly popular in todays electrical brain stimulation studies.

Future modes may be added via firmware update

Do I need an app to control V3?

No. All functionality of the V3 is available via the joystick and LED display. Alternatively, V3 can be controlled via the Android app.

Current Regulation in V3

Probably the most important function of an electrical stimulator is ensuring that the target current level is correctly maintained. This is an explanation of how control the current output in the V3. There is a hardware current regulator which is controlled by the MCU. The MCU does not participate in current regulation, it just sets the target current value to the current regulator input. The hardware current regulator is very fast. It can change the output current from the minimum 0mA to the maximum 2mA in 300 µ seconds at full impedance load. At lower resistance levels it can do it even faster. The current of the high voltage source is hardware limited to 2.1 mA, which is fed to the hardware current regulator,.which as described above can quickly change the output current to the targeted value and thenthe final step is an independent hardware current limiter, configured to 2.1 mA between the hardware current regulator and the electrodes. In summary, the input to the hardware current regulator cannot exceed 2.1 mA, which is then shaped into the signal e.g. tdcs, trns, tpcs, tacs at the desired current level - which is limited to 2 mA, and then passed through a final limiter before the electrodes. This provides super fast, super safe signal generation. As part of the assembly process we test and verify that all three of these circuits are functioning correctly. We perform this test on every single device. 100% testing.

Charging your V3

Very responsive

The team is very responsive - the order was delivered on time (with good notification on progress of order) and when I needed some accessories, the team made it easy to locate and order...

Effective Device

It seems to be an effective device, at least to increase concentration.

Whoh more energy!

I've been sleeping less because more energy! I think having a bald head would help make it work even better...


Focus V3 tES Device

Potentially Life Changing

I got the Focus v3 for my girlfriend. I wanted to wait a couple months before reviewing. So far, she has said she loves it. I can also notice that she seems to have more energy. She only uses the tdcs mode, for 20 minutes, 3 times a week. Some subtle things she had to learn about how she reacts to it, like she shouldn't have coffee on the mornings when she uses the device. I liked to Focus because it does a good job of making sure the voltage is consistent by checking the resistance through your head I think like 50,000 per second! Regarding Caputron, they are by far the best company for these types of things, in terms of knowledge, availability of all the products we want/need, and helpfulness. Thanks!
