B-Alert headsets are shipped paired to either a B-Alert Dongle or an ESU. If the pairing is lost, the devices must be re-synced using the B-Alert Live software, which is included with your AcqKnowledge installation. B-Alert Live supports AcqKnowledge B-Alert functionality and is installed to the following default directory: Main Drive:\ABM\B-Alert\Rome\
Browse to the above directory and launch the B-Alert Live software by double-clicking the Rome.exe icon.
Plug the Bluetooth receiver (i.e., dongle or ESU) into your PC. Note: Ensure that all nearby B-Alert products, including headsets and other dongles/ESUs, are turned off and unplugged.
Switch ON the B-Alert headset. The Red LED will illuminate for the first 3-4 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of Green LED flashing. Wait until the headset LED pattern is Flashing Green and Solid Red before proceeding to the next step:
In the B-Alert Live software’s Operations menu, select “Sync Devices.”
Click the “Search Devices” button and wait. Allow 45-60 seconds for the USB device to search for other Bluetooth devices in range.
After the search has completed, all Bluetooth devices identified in range will appear under the “Select Device” drop down menu.
Look for the B-Alert headset. The device should have a 12 digit BDA address followed by: (ABM EEG XXXXXXXXX). Example: 000BCE042CCA (ABM EEG 300103056):
Click “Connect” and wait for the pop-up window indicating that the headset has connected: “Device connection succeeded. Please restart device.”
Click “OK” and then switch OFF the Headset.
Unplug the ESU receiver, and then re-plug it into the laptop/computer.
Switch the headset back ON; wait 5-10 seconds for the Green LED on headset to turn Solid Green, signaling the headset has synced.
IMPORTANT: During pairing, the distance between the headset and Bluetooth receiver should be line-of-sight and less than 3 meters.
Electrodermal Activity (EDA) is an objective index for understanding emotional states. Researchers measure EDA to gain insights on psychological or physiological response, leading them down the path of scientific discovery. Because EDA is so important to research, BIOPAC has created tools to optimize event-related EDA analysis. Topics include: how to identify skin conductance responses, convert stim events from E-Prime SuperLab, Presentation, Vizard, etc., into AcqKnowledge events that can used for analysis, and score skin conductance responses using the AcqKnowledge automated EDA analysis tool.
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
