Title: Active Electrodes
Post by: rafaelduarte on December 19, 2013, 08:35:15 am
Hi everyone,

I was looking at active electrodes that I just bought and I noticed some gaps on the protective cover on the top part of a few electrodes. These gaps expose connections of the electrode board. So, I was thinking, wouldnt that be a problem if conductive gel is used?? I mean, it could create short circuits between critical components of the board.

Cheers,
Rafael

Hey Rafael,

You are correct. In that case it is possible to short-circuit the electrodes.

Either be careful when applying the gel or if you can add silicone in the gaps or heat the already applied one and reshape it.

Best regards,
