– Hi quality speaker
– Programming & data logging that can be uploaded into the software.
– Computer to brick communication through on board USB, or external Wi-fi or Bluetooth dongles.
*Rechargeable battery pack (1 piece)
The lithium ion rechargeable DC Battery is designed for use with the Programmable Robot and features a capacity of 2,050 mAh.
It provides longer run time that AA batteries and can be charged without taking the model apart. The battery is included in the set and has a chargetime of around three to four hours. It requires the DC Charger, which is the same charger as used for the rechargeable DC Battery.
*Interactive servo motors with builty in rotation sensor
Large Servo Motor (2 pieces)
The Large Servo Motors is powerful motor that uses techno feedback for precise control to within one degree of accuracy. By using the built in rotation sensor, the intelligent motor can be made to align with other motors on the robot so that it can drive in a straight line at the same speed. It can also be used to give an accurate for experiments. The motor case design also makes it easy to assemble gear trains.
– Tacho feedback for one degree of accuracy
– 160-170 RPM
– Running torque of 20 N/cm (approximately 30 oz/in)
– Stall torque of 40 N/cm (approximately 60 oz/in)
– Auto ID is built into software
*Medium Servo Motor (1 piece)
The Medium Servo Motor is a great for lower load, higher speed applications and when faster response time and a smaller profile are needed in the robot’s design. The motor uses tacho feedback for precise control within one degree of accuracy and has a built in rotation sensor.
– Tacho feedback for one degree of accuracy
– 240-250 RPM
– Running torque of 8 N/cm (approximately 11 oz/in)
– Stall torque of 12 N/cm (approximately 17 oz/in)
– Auto ID is built into software
*Ultrasonic Sensor (1 piece)
The digital Ultrasonic Sensor generates sound waves and reads their echoes to detect and measure distance from objects. It can also send single sound waves to work as sonar or listen for a sound wave that triggers the start of a program. Students could design a traffic monitoring system and measure distances between vehicles, for is instance. There is an opportunity to discover how the technology used in everyday items like automatic doors, cars and manufacturing systems.
– Measures distances between one and 250cm (1-100 in)
– Accurate to +/- 1cm (+/- .394 in.)
– Front illumination is constant while emitting & blinks while listening. Returns true if other ultrasonic sound is recognized.
– Auto ID is built into software
*Gyro Sensor (1 piece)
The digital Gyro Sensor measures that robot’s rotational motion and changes in its orientation. Students can measure angle create balancing robots and explore the technology that powers a variety of real world tools, navigation systems and game controllers.
– Angle mode measures angles with accuracy of +/-3 degrees.
– Gyro mode has a maximum output of 440 degrees/second
– Sample rate of 1 kHz
– Auto ID is built into software
*Color Sensor/light sensor (1 piece)
The digital Color Sensor distinguishes between eight different colors. It also serves as a light sensor by detecting light intensities.
Student can build color sorting and line following robots, experiment with light reflection of different colors and gain experience with a technology that is widely used in industries like recycling, agriculture and packaging
– Measures reflected red light and ambient light, from darkness to very bright sunlight.
– Capable of detecting eight colors. It can tell the difference between color or black and white or between blue, green, yellow, red, white and brown.
– Sample rate of kHz
– Auto ID is built into the software
– Touch Sensor (2 pieces)
The analog Touch Sensor is a sample but exceptionally precise tool that detects when its front button is pressed or released and is able to count single and multiple presses. Students can build start/stop control systems, create maze solving robots and uncover the technology’s use in devices as digital musical instruments, computer keyboards and kitchen appliances.
– Cross axle hole on button
– Auto ID is built into the software
*Cable pack (1 piece)
This cable pack contains the same seven RJ12
Connector cables as included in the set
*Charger (1 piece)
*Ball wheel (1 piece)
