Connecting Sensor Cables 4 Channel SmartMind EEG Station

The EEG Station - 4 Channel device ports are located on the front panel of the device. A label on top of the device serves as a reference for which port corresponds to which channel. Along the bottom, from left to right are the Active ports for Channels 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Above those 4 ports is a row of three ports which, from left to right, represent the Reference port for Channel 1 and Channel 2 (left most port), the Ground port (center port) and the reference port for Channel 3 and Channel 4 (right most port on top row).

The references are internally linked within the amplifier itself such that Channels 1 and 2 share one reference cable and Channels 3 and 4 share a separate cable. You can then also use a Jumper to link the references for all 4 channels together (when using a 3 or 4 channel placement).
For a 1 Channel placement, you will only need the Channel 1 batch of cables (red, black and green). 

  • The Red sensor connects to the left most port on the bottom row.

  • The black sensor plugs into to the left most sensor on the top row.

  • The green cable connects to the Center port on the top row.

Note that your cable colors may differ from what is depicted in the image here).
For a 2 Channel Placement, you will need 4 cables; Actives for Channel 1 and Channel 2, a Reference (shared between Channel 1 & 2) and a Ground sensor.

  • The Red sensor connects to the left most port on the bottom row.

  • The Yellow sensor connects to the 2nd port from left on the bottom row for Channel 2.

  • The black sensor plugs into to the left most sensor on the top row.

  • The green cable connects to the Center port on the top row.


Note that your cable colors may differ from what is depicted in the image here).
For a 4 Channel Placement, you will need all 7 cables and the jumper.

  • The Red sensor connects to the left most port on the bottom row.

  • The Yellow sensor connects to the 2nd port from left on the bottom row for Channel 2.

  • Use a Jumper to Connect the Reference Ports for Channel 1/2 and Channel 3/4 together.

  • The black sensor plugs into to the left most sensor on the top row (into the jumper).

  • The green cable connects to the Center port on the top row.

  • The blue sensor plugs into to the right most sensor on the top row (into the jumper).

  • Plug the Active sensor for Channel 3 into the 3rd port from left on the bottom row (orange cable in image).

  • Plug the Active sensor for Channel 4 into the last port (on right) on the bottom row (light brown cable in image)

  • If you are only using 3 channels, then simply do not connect a sensor cable to the red "D+" port, but the other connections would remain the same.
