Quick Start Guide & Maintenance


Recharge to 100% capacity in approximately 4 hours. Charging for 30 minutes yields about a 10% increase in charge. LED will light to green when fully charged and red when drained. The neuroheadset should not be charged when on the head.
Access software from your Emotiv user account MY EMOTIV > MY DOWNLOADS. You will be prompted to enter a serial key and order number found when clicking the orange key button.

Start-up the EPOC Control Panel program, loading the Headset Setup screen.
Always hydrate the sensors in the provided Hydration Sensor Park. The inserts must be properly moistened with saline solution for good contact to be achieved. The felts should be wet to the touch, but not soaking wet!

Add drops of saline to saturate the large white hydrator pad attached to the top cover of the hydrator, then close the cover and gently shake the hydrator park. This will maintain the moisture of the felt pads when they are not in use.

Note: Replace with standard multipurpose contact lens saline solution.
Remove the sensor units with their felt pads from the hydrator pack and insert each one into the black plastic headset arms, turning each one clockwise one-quarter turn util you feel a "click".

The sensor units should be stored in the hydrators pack when not in use.
Using both hands, slide the headset down from the top of your head. Place the sensors with the black rubber insert on the bone just behind each ear lobe. Correct placement of the rubber sensor is critical for correct operation.

2 front sensors should be approximately at the hairline or about the width of 3 fingers above your eyebrows.  Press and hold the 2 reference sensors (located just above and behind your ears) for about 5-10 seconds.
   Good contact of reference sensors is the key for a good signal
