In this article, you’ll learn how to access your OpenSignals add-on after the successful activation of your add-on license.
OpenSignals add-ons are automatically activated once you connect a device with licenses associated with it to OpenSignals. You can find out detailed information about the activation process and how to activate add-ons manually if the automatic activation method fails in this support article here.
Step 1: Confirm Active add-ons
Enter the help interface by clicking on the “?” icon in the OpenSignals interface.
The help interface lists all the available add-ons. Check the checkbox next to each of the add-on that you want to activate (the checkbox can only be checked for available add-ons for your device).
If done correctly, the help interface should now look similar to the one seen in the screenshot below (here with the example of the EMG Analysis add-on):
If your add-on is not listed here, follow the steps to (re-)activate your add-on license(s) here.
Step 2: Access Your Add-on
Two following types of add-ons exist for the OpenSignals (r)evolution software:
- Online add-ons: process data in real-time during signal acquisition and are available in the acquisition mode
- Offline add-ons: post-processing of acquired acquisition data and are available in the visualization mode
This example shows how to access an offline add-on in the visualization mode, however, the main steps are the same for online add-ons with only the acquisition mode being used instead.
Enter the visualization mode by clicking on the “play” button in the OpenSignals main interface.
Click on the add-ons button highlighted in the screenshot below to access your add-ons.
Select the add-on you want to use from the selection of available add-ons as highlighted in the screenshot below.
Your add-on should now be visible as seen in the screenshot below.
What if I still can’t activate my add-ons?
Verify that your add-ons license are activated in OpenSignals. You can find detailed instrucitons for this process here.
