Heart beat pulse sensor interfacing with pic microcontroller. Hi everyone I hope you are fine and doing well. In this article, you will learn how to interface heart beat pulse sensor with pic microcontroller. How to measure heart beat using inexpensive hear beat pulse sensor? How to use this cheap heart beat pulse sensor with pic microcontroller to measure heart beat rate very easily. I have used SEN-11574 hear beat pulse sensor in this project. I have already posted a article on how to measure heart beat using arduino and heart beat sensor. You may also check. But today I am going to explain SEN-11574 heart beat sensor interfacing with pic microcontroller.
I have used pic18f46k22 microcontroller in this project. PIC18F46k22 microcontroller is one of the best production of microchip family of microcontroller. It has a lot of built in resources like more than 20 built in analog to digital converters and many other features. After PIC16F877A microcontroller, it is one of my favorite microcontroller from microchip medium level microcontrollers series. So now lets start with introduction of SEN-11574 heart beat pulse sensor. It has many applications and few of them are given below:
SEN-11574 is very easy to use heart beat sensor for engineers and students. It consists of optical heart beat sensor circuit and amplification circuit and noise cancellation circuit and its internal circuit diagram is given in its data sheet ans shown below.
It has three pins and description of each pin is given below:
So this sensor gives output in the form of voltage and we need to measure this voltage waveform and extract heart beat rate out of this waveform. I will explain it in later part of this article that how I measured the output waveform heart pulse sensor and measured heart beat with it.
Followings components are used in this project:
Circuit diagram of heart beat pulse sensor is given below and which is self explanatory.
Pulse sensor wire goes to analog pin zero of pic18f46k22 microcontroller. It measure output wave form and extract heart beat rate according to the algorithm which I stored in microcontroller. Code update the value of heart beat on LCD every 2 mili seconds.
I have been providing project services to students and industry from last 4 years . Contact me if you want to hire me for your projects and engineering problems. Send me your project details at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
