The compact circuit presented here is perfect for receiving the signals from pulsed fixed-frequency transmitters. Chest straps from several well-known brands (Polar, Huger, Kettler, Crane, Outbreaker, ...) transmit a short signal burst with a frequency of 5.3 kHz. These signals can be received and used in your own projects.
CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.
Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
