Sensor Pinouts

  • TX-OUT = Transmit output. Output serial data of 3V logic level, Usually connected to RXD pin of microcontrollers/RS232/USB-UART.
  • +5V = Regulated 5V supply input.
  • GND = Board Common Ground

Note: Product does not require battery for operation. It is powered from external PCB as per above pinouts.

Blood Pressure Basics

Blood pressure is the pressure of the blood in the arteries as it is pumped around the body by the heart. When your heart beats, it contracts and pushes blood through the arteries to the rest of your body. This force creates pressure on the arteries. Blood pressure is recorded as two numbers— the systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic pressure (as the heart relaxes between beats). The unit which measures this is called Sphygmomanometer.

Monitoring blood pressure at home is important for many people, especially if you have high blood pressure. Blood pressure does not stay the same all the time. It changes to meet your body’s needs. It is affected by various factors including body position, breathing or emotional state, exercise and sleep. It is best to measure blood pressure when you are relaxed and sitting or lying down.

Classification of blood pressure for adults (18 years and older)

  Systolic (mm Hg) Diastolic (mm Hg)
Hypotension < 90 < 60
Desired 90–119 60–79
Prehypertension 120–139 80–89
Stage 1 Hypertension 140–159 90–99
Stage 2 Hypertension 160–179 100–109
Hypertensive Crisis ≥ 180 ≥ 110

High blood pressure (hypertension) can lead to serious problems like heart attack, stroke or kidney disease. High blood pressure usually does not have any symptoms, so you need to have your blood pressure checked regularly.

Output Readings

Following are example output readings from sensor. Each reading consist of 15 bytes at 9600 baud rate. The reading packet's last byte is always enter key character(0x0A in hex and 10 in decimal) so you can view each reading on new line. Also this character can be used to sync in microcontrollers after reach readings.

The output reading is 8bit value in ASCII format fixed digits, from 000 to 255.

Typical reading will be like below where the three values seperated by comma and space.

  • Systolic
  • Diastolic
  • Pulse

129, 107, 095

We have used Terminal software to view reading, You can use any other software also which allows connecting to COM port and view/process data.

MCU Interfacing

It’s very easy to interface with microcontroller having UART. Configure your microcontroller to communicate at 9600 baud rate. Start reading incoming ASCII data. You can use this ASCII data to display on seven segment, LCD or convert to integer and do calculations as per project requirement. If you need integer values, you convert ASCII packet to Integer. In our sample code below, we have converted this ASCII value to interger.

Sample source code for 8051 type MCU, since its in C, it can be easily adapted to any other target devices.

					// Value of variables will be between 0-255

					sbuffer[pos] = ch;
	   } // end while
}// end main
