The movisens SensorManager provides an easy interface for you to work with your movisens sensors. It allows you to view the details of your sensors configuration, initiate recordings (including delayed start recordings) and retrieve the data captured by the sensor. It also indicates and allows the installation of new firmwares.

New Features:
  • Improved interoperability between sensor and movisensXS: The coupling of sensor and XS is more stable
  • Readout of very long measurements is optimized: Measurements that record data for several days will be more stable when transferred from sensor to computer
  • Improved usability of the SensorManager
  • Multi-Part-Measurement: If the battery level of the sensor reaches 10%, the sensor automatically switches to standby mode. This pauses the measurement until the participant charges the sensor via the USB cable. The measurement resumes upon the disconnection of the sensor from the cradle, as long as the sensor battery level is greater than 30%.
  • No interruption of the measurement: Connecting the sensor to a PC during a measurement no longer terminates the measurement. Instead, the SensorManager displays the details of the current active measurement.
  • Checking battery level: The SensorManager prevents the commencement of a measurement if the battery level is 10% or lower.
  • Participant configuration: The personal data of the participants can be entered and stored before the measurement starts. 
The movisens SensorManager compatible with our entire range of physiological sensors:
  • Move 4, EcgMove 4, EdaMove 4, LightMove 4
  • Move 3, EcgMove 3, EdaMove 3 LightMove 3
  • Move II, ekgMove, edaMove
