hello rescue team,
a couple of days ago I have purchased the polar heart Rate Monitor interface from sparkfun.
I was spoiled untill now to be able to plug things in and find preprogrammed patches to make thinks work. Now I sat down and failed to make this thing work over the serial object.
I had this information:
(from another client, who apparently made it work with max/msp)
1 - set the raw mode: S+0+CR (ascii commands)
2 - get the heart rate data: G+1+CR (id.) as fast as possible (every 60ms is fine for me)
3 - then you get 3 values from the hrmi: status byte, count and heart rate.
(this general information from the product page)
Get Heart Rate Data
ASCII Command Value: G
Hex Command Value: 0x47
Command Argument: Number of heart rate history buffer entries 0-32
Response: 2 - 34 8-bit values
Description: Get the specified number of heart rate values and status information from the heart rate history buffer.
ASCII Command Value: S
Hex Command Value: 0x53
Command Argument: 3 bit mode

this is my patch, which doesn´t work!! Why? why?

thanx a million,
