AD8232 Single Led Heart Rate Monitor problem

Post by Davide » Sun Aug 13, 2017 5:27 am

Hello to everybody,

I have recently bought two AD8232 Single Lead Heart Rate Monitor boards, but I am experiencing several issues in povering on,
since LED is not stable but it continue to randomly reset and power on when I move the breadboard where it is fixed in or when I insert the ECG electrodes jacket...
so I have to move the board for a while in order the LED returns to power on again...
When I am trying to meausure heart rate, I notice the LED fades and it continue in blinking; what is happening ?
I believed it was due because of a false contacat, so I tried to solder whires on the GND, 3.3V, OUTPUT, LO-, LO+ connectors but problems still happens on both boards.
I really don't know how to solve this problem, so I am trusting in your kindness and courtesy if you can help me to explain what's wrong.
Advanced thansk to everybody will help me.
