The MyoWare® 2.0 Reference Cable is meant as an extension for the MyoWare 2.0 Muscle Sensor's reference pin.
You will just need to insert the pin into its housing and place a biomedical sensor pad into the electrode snap. When ready, stick the reference cable's snap pin to a separate section of the body such as a bony portion of the elbow or a nonadjacent muscle near a targeted muscle where the MyoWare 2.0 Muscle Sensor's built-in reference pin is unable to reach.
Note: The reference electrode socket remains active even with the cable inserted. Disable the socket by cutting the jumper trace on the top side of the sensor. Re-enable the socket by shorting the jumper pads with solder.
The MyoWare® 2.0 ecosystem consists of shields that easily interface with the MyoWare® 2.0 Muscle Sensor, which is a low-cost, Arduino-compatible, all-in-one electromyography (EMG) sensor from Advancer Technologies. The innovative connector system allows users to easily snap shields together with a compact low profile and connect to a microcontroller's analog input to measure raw, filtered, and rectified electrical activity of a target muscle. This eliminates the need to solder connections between boards.
This product is a collaboration with Brian Kaminski from Advancer Technologies. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
