To record accurate and consistent readings, your sEMG Smart Sensors must remain clean and free of any corrosion. If the Smart Sensors are not properly maintained, they will be prone to picking up un-wanted electrical noise, which will result in high EMG readings. Continued improper maintenance could lead to a failure of the Smart Sensor. The picture below illustrates the difference between a properly maintained Smart Sensor and a Smart Sensorthat has become corroded.
The female snaps on a properly maintained Smart Sensor should have a shiny metallic luster. The gray plastic housing should be free of stains and debris.
If necessary, the female snaps and plastic housing can be cleaned using jewelry cleaner.
• Use a Q-Tip that has been dipped in jewelry cleaner to swab out the female snaps.
• Use a small brush or towel that has been dipped in jewelry cleaner to clean up the plastic housing.
IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT USE ALCOHOL TO CLEAN THE SENSORS.
