Learn how to set up the Electrode Shield

The Electrode Shield is an essential component of the Interactive Wall Kit. The shield allows you to quickly connect the Electrode Pads to the Touch Board with shielded cables and provides a prototyping area to solder more electronics to it. Attach the shield to the Touch Board and connect the Electrode Pads to the shield to set-up your interactive wall.

Step 2

Connect the cables to the Touch Board

When the shield is sitting securely on top of the Touch Board, insert one of the cables into one of the audio jack on the shield. Then, insert the USB cable to Touch Board, and the other end to a power source.

Step 4

Test the Electrode Shield

Now, plug in either headphones or speakers into the Touch Board and turn the Touch Board on. Wait for the red light to stop flashing. Touch the test point on the Electrode Pad. You should now be able to hear the Touch Board Audio Guide.

You can connect up to 12 pads to the shield with the shielded cable.
