MikroElektronika Heart Rate 5 Click Element

The heart rate 5 click element is used to monitor a person’s heart rate or measure peripheral capillary oxygen saturation. This element is for using the MikroElektronika Heart Rate 5 Click board, which features an optical biosensor. When a finger is placed above the sensor, the sensor uses LED readings to measure the passage of blood in the finger. This LED data is then translated to a heart rate in beats per minute (bpm).

The optical biosensor on the Heart Rate 5 Click board is extremely sensitive to electrical noise. It's recommended to power the board via battery or with a reliable isolated power supply to ensure accurate readings.

The heart rate 5 click is a sensor element that can be imported into the Element Toolbox through the Add Element Add Element button located in the toolbox from the Embedded tab.
