What sample rate and how many bits resolution do you get ?

I will send it via email.
However it is for the comADC02 hardware.

A normal ohmmeter is not very suitable for measuring electrode
impedance, because it uses DC (resulting in electrode
polarization) and probably exceeds the limits of IEC601-1
(therefore you got the electric shock and the light-effects)

There are other limiting factors too like ADC conversion speed.

If the UART chip on the mainboard can handle that speed, I see no
reason why such settings should not work.
For RS232EEG however the upper limit is 115200 baud due to
xtal-frequency and minimum possible baudrate divider factor.
