Heart rate sensor module MAX30102 - pulse sensor


The MAX30102 module uses a red LED (660nm), infrared LED (880nm), and photodetector to approximate blood oxygen content and heart rate pulses. The sensor can be placed on a finger, wrist, or other area with significant blood flow to measure these parameters.

Principle Description:
Light-dissolving method: measuring the pulse and blood oxygen saturation by using human tissue to cause different transmittance when the blood vessel beats;
Light source: a specific wavelength of light-emitting diode selective for oxyhemoglobin (H bO 2 ) and hemoglobin ( Hb ) in arterial blood;
The transmittance is converted into an electrical signal: the change in the volume of the arterial pulsation causes a change in the transmittance of the light. At this time, the 
photoelectric variator receives the reflected light from the human tissue, converts it into an electrical signal, and amplifies and outputs it.
