Muscle Sensor v3 Kit



Replaced by the MyoWare® Muscle Sensor  

Muscle Sensor v3 Kit

Description: This sensor will measure the filtered and rectified electrical activity of a muscle; outputting 0-Vs Volts depending the amount of activity in the selected muscle, where Vs signifies the voltage of the power source. Power supply voltage: min. +-3.5V 

New Features:
  • Improved adjustable gain (more rugged)
  • On-board port for our new cables
    • Connects to the board straight out of the box
  • Reduced voltage needed (+-3.5V)
  • Now comes with a set of cables and sample electrodes!
Dimensions: 1.0" x 1.0"


Wiring Instructions:
  1. To use this sensor, the user must have three electrodes connected to the subjects body.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The last electrode should be placed at the end of the muscle and connected to the blue cable.
  5. Finally, connect pin SIG to an analog input pin of your microcontroller and the GND pin to the ground pin on your microcontroller.

WARNING: As an inherent risk associated with electrical component work, improper use of this sensor could cause harm to the subject. If underage, do not use without adult supervision.

WARNING: This sensor is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation treatment, or prevention of disease, in a man or other animals.
