If a BioNomadix wireless physiology signal displays dropout/flatline…
On a single channel
Make sure transducer/lead is firmly inserted to transmitter channel, electrodes are fully adhered, and leads are not pulling
Switch recording channels (both X, Y, and various channels on Receiver)
On both channels
Radio interference is likely disrupting transmission. Try these steps to restore signal quality:
Locate the Receiver/Logger/Smart Center closer to the Transmitter
Charge the Transmitter
Eliminate alternate sources of electrical noise (i.e., cell phones)
Elevate the BioNomadix Receiver/Logger/Smart Center higher in the room
Maintain line of sight to the Receiver/Logger/Smart Center
Participants may inadvertently be blocking line of sight when they move (i.e., scrunch their head to their shoulder). If there’s enough length in the leads, mount Transmitter on the shoulder or upper arm to let more of the radio energy escape the Transmitter.
If the recording environment is near a military base, it’s possible that military-grade RF equipment is interfering; a spectral scan would be required to confirm that and then frequencies could be positioned at quiet points (via BIOPAC Support Request).
Current shipping Firmware can’t be used to change to fixed frequencies on paired BioNomadix Receivers; Loggers and Smart Centers can specify their channels.

New Ventilator Validation System Allows Device Manufacturers to Test Ventilator Pressure and Volume System supports rapid development and testing of hardware for COVID-19 treatment Goleta, California – March 24, 2020 BIOPAC Systems, Inc. announced a new Ventilator Validation System for engineering and device manufacturers to use when designing and testing new and existing ventilators for […]
Space Flight Simulations Prevent Disasters Under psychological and physical stress, astronauts can put their mission and crew in danger. Looking into this issue, researchers created a potentially catastrophic spaceflight simulation using a virtual reality environment and recorded the heart rate of participants. Psychophysiological responses to the potentially disastrous flight simulation were recorded using a BIOPAC MP […]
