Coded transmission reduces the risk of cross-talk in a crowded area, so the training computer finds your horse’s heart rate and not someone else’s.
The heart generates an electrical signal that can be measured on the skin. The Polar Equine T52H coded transmitter contains two electrodes to detect the electrical signal of every heartbeat and sends this information continuously and wirelessly to the training computer. The electrodes are mounted on a sealed transmitter which is attached to the saddle.
Putting the transmitter into place is extremely simple: First, place the + electrode under the saddlecloth, then fix the – electrode to the saddle girth, and finally fix the transmitter to the saddle.
