Muscle Sensor Kit
- Embedded electrode connector - electrodes now snap directly to myoware, getting rid of those pesky cables and making the myoware wearable.
- Led indicators - we've added two onboard led's one to let you know when the myoware's power is on.
- Raw egg output - a popular request from grad students, the myoware now has a secondary output of the raw egg waveform.
- Single supply - myoware won't need +/- voltage power supplies unlike our previous sensor.
Muscle Sensor Kit
This Muscle Sensor v3 from Advancer Technologies measures, filters, rectifies, and amplifies the electrical activity of a muscle and produces an analogue output signal that can easily be read by a microcontroller, enabling novel, muscle-controlled interfaces for your projects.
- To use this sensor, the user must have three electrodes connected to the subject’s body.
- The reference electrode should be placed on an inactive section of the body, such as the bony portion of the elbow, shin or forearm. This electrode should be connected to the black or brown cable.
- The two other electrodes should be placed along the muscle selected to be measured. The second electrode should be placed along the mid-length of the muscle; this electrode should be connected to the red cable.
- The last electrode should be placed at the end of the muscle and connected to the blue cable.
- Finally, connect pin SIG to an analog input pin of your microcontroller and the GND pin to the ground pin on your microcontroller.
- 1 x EMG Muscle Sensor V3.0 Module.
- 3 x Electrode Pad.
- 1 x Connecting Cable.
|Audio-style plug||3.5 mm jack|
|Length of connecting cable||1 m|
|Dimensions||3.3 x 2.6 x 1.5cms|
How does a muscle sensor work?
The Muscle Sensor uses EMG (electromyography) to sense the electrical activity of your muscles. It then converts that into a varying voltage that can be read on the analog input pin of any microcontroller.
