What's the difference between Analog and Digital Sensors?
In this article, you will learn what’s the difference between analog and digital sensors and why it matters when you select your biosignalsplux kit. 🙂
Analog sensors require one individual connection for each output signal provided. In other words, 1 port of the biosignalsplux hub is occupied by 1 sensor connection and only 1 sensor signals is acquired via this connection.
Examples of analog sensors are Electrocardiography (ECG), Electromyography (EMG), and Respiration sensors.
Digital sensors require only one connection to provide multiple output signals. In other words, 1 port of the biosignalsplux hub is occupied by 1 sensor connection but multiple signals be acquired via this connection.
Examples of digital sensors are our FNIRS and SpO2 sensors.
Why is this important?
Digital sensors have been introduced recently into the biosignalsplux product portfolio and are not compatible with all biosignalsplux hub. Check out the following article to see what sensors are compatible with your hub:
