It is important to note that the reference electrode socket remains active even with the cable inserted. Users can disable the socket by cutting the jumper trace on the sensor's top side. To re-enable the socket, they can short the jumper pads with solder. Please note that the MyoWare 2.0 Muscle Sensor, Power Shield, and EMG pads are not included in the 10 pack and need to be purchased separately.
The MyoWare 2.0 ecosystem, which includes these reference cables, is an innovative, low-cost solution for electromyography (EMG). It's an all-in-one sensor from Advancer Technologies that is compatible with Arduino. The system's unique connector allows for easy shield snapping, creating a compact, low-profile setup that can be connected to a microcontroller's analog input. This allows for the measurement of raw, filtered, and rectified electrical activity of a target muscle, eliminating the need for soldering connections between boards.
These reference cables are the result of a collaboration with Brian Kaminski from Advancer Technologies. A portion of each sale goes back to them, supporting product development and ongoing improvements.
This pack includes 10 MyoWare 2.0 Reference Cables. Comprehensive guides for hooking up the cables, as well as quick start and advanced guides for the MyoWare 2.0 system, are available. Please visit the MyoWare 2.0 Ecosystem Page for more information.
