Interfacing MAX30100 Heart Rate Monitor With Arduino

In this project, we will employ MAX30100 and Arduino to reads heart rate or pulse oximetry.

About MAX30100:

The MAX30100 is an integrated pulse oximetry and heart-rate monitor sensor solution. It combines two LEDs, a photodetector, optimized optics, and low-noise analog signal processing to detect pulse oximetry and heart-rate signals. The MAX30100 operates from 1.8V and 3.3V power supplies and can be powered down through software with negligible standby current, permitting the power supply to remain connected at all times.

Features of MAX30100:

- Consumes very low power (operates from 1.8V and 3.3V)

- Ultra-Low Shutdown Current (0.7µA, typ)

- Fast Data Output Capability

Step 1: Components Required:

- Arduino board 1

- MAX301001

- Jumper wires

- Breadboard 1

You can buy these components from elegocart.

Step 2: Project Setup:
