Serial port markers

EmotivPRO can receive automatic markers via serial ports (TTL and virtual), so that you can perform event-related experiments with high temporal precision.

To configure serial port markers using a real or virtual COM port:

  1. Click on Settings which can be found at the top right-hand side of EmotivPRO.

  2. Select Serial port marking from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.

  3. Select the configurations you need from each menu: COM port (real or virtual), bits per second (BAU), data bits, parity, stop bits, and flow control that are compatible with your sending device

  4. Click on Start to save the configurations.

  5. Click on the back arrow at the top left-hand corner of the screen to go back to the Recording screen.

You will see a vertical pink line in the data stream in Raw EEG, Performance Metrics and Motion Sensors views when a marker has been added successfully and will be able to view the markers in the recording timeline and exported data file.
