Pulse Sensor

SEN-11574 Pulse Sensor

SparkFun Electronics

The Pulse Sensor Amped is a plug-and-play heart-rate sensor for Arduino. Students, artists, athletes, makers, and game and mobile developers who want to easily incorporate live heart-rate data into their projects can use it. It essentially combines a simple optical heart rate sensor with amplification and noise cancellation circuitry making it fast and easy to get reliable pulse readings. In addition, it sips power with just 4mA current draw at 5V so it is great for mobile applications. Simply clip the Pulse Sensor to your earlobe or fingertip and plug it into your 3 or 5 Volt Arduino and you are ready to read heart rate. The 24" cable on the Pulse Sensor is terminated with standard male headers so there is no soldering required. Arduino example code is available as well as a Processing sketch for visualizing heart rate data.
