- WORKING OF PULSE SENSOR -
The heart rate sensor measures your heart rate in Beats per Minute using an optical LED light source and an LED light sensor. The light shines through your skin, and the sensor measures the amount of light that reflects back. The light reflections will vary as blood pulses under your skin past the light.
- HOW TO USE PULSE SENSOR?
At the wrist, lightly press the index and middle fingers of one hand on the opposite wrist, just below the base of the thumb. At the neck, lightly press the side of the neck, just below your jawbone. Count the number of beats in 15 seconds, and multiply by four. That's your heart rate.
Heart Rate data can be used in many Electronic design and microcontroller projects. But the heart rate data is difficult to read, however, the Pulse Sensor Amped helps us to read heart rate. The Heart Beat Pulse Sensor Amped is a plug-and-play heart-rate sensor for Arduino.
It can be used by students, artists, athletes, makers, and game & mobile developers who want to easily incorporate live heart-rate data into their projects.
It essentially combines a simple optical heart rate sensor with amplification and noise cancellation circuitry making it fast and easy to get reliable pulse readings.
Pulse Sensor Amped adds amplification and noise cancellation circuitry to the hardware. It's noticeably faster and easier to get reliable pulse readings. Pulse Sensor Amped works with either a 3V or 5V Arduino.
Connection with Arduino Board
Connect the sensor’s power supply pins to the Arduino board supply pin as Red – 5V, Black – GND, and Purple – A0 (analog input 0) it's over. This Analog input reading can be displayed in the serial terminal of Arduino IDE or it can be drawn as the pulse by using Processing IDE.
What does pulse sensor do?
- This is a heart rate/biometric pulse rate detecting sensor
- This is a plug & play type sensor
- The operating voltage of this sensor is +5V/+3.3V
- Consumption of current is 4mA
- Length is 0.625”
- Width is 0.125
- Integral Amplification
- Circuit for cancellation of noise
It's very useful ,original and functions excellently
It will be useful greater with Arduino because of less money and more function
The Product is good. I recommend you to buy this Heart Beat Rate Pulse Sensor Module as it is much cheaper than others. I have been using this since twenty days in my diy project and it is working fine.
Received the item in a nice package- promptly delivered by Robotbanao.
I started using it for my project work immediately. It is almost a month now. The module is working without any issues.
I would recommend it to anyone who has a similar requirement.
