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 the “ Markers” button in the bottom right corner of the application

  2. Click on “Serial port marking” on the left menu

  3. Select the configurations in the drop down menus for available 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 “Apply” to save configuration. Click on “Cancel” to cancel changes.

  5. Click on “ Markers” to return to data views

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 files.
