Voltage - I think you are correct about that. That connector is a bit tough! Also, getting a grip on the board without mashing it was an issue, but once I got it pushed in all was good. Mee-N-Mac - Thanks for the advice on electronic troubleshooting. One thing that I came across in trying to get the...

To clarify, when I hooked up the 5v rail, I connected both the -Vs and GND to a GND pin on the Arduino board. Yeah ... that's not going to work. From the pics, it appeared your +/-9v supply was correct. The board has an instrumentation amp w/a gain of 200v/v. That's AC coupled to an active fullwave...

Hello Sparkfun forum goers, I am a college graduate that is going back to school for a degree in EE, with emphasis in electromechanical prosthetic systems. In the course of trying to teach myself and get my hands dirty, I came across Sparkfun's myoelectric muscle sensor kit (SEN-11776)(https://www.s...
