Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2216 -

With the Potentiometer you can determine both position and direction of rotation. Use this sensor to get an analog measurement of angular position. This measurement can help to understand the position of robot arms, or other mechanisms. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the VEX Controller to use the Potentiometer. A potentiometer is an electrical device used to measure angular position. The user can therefore adjust the degree to which the potentiometer opposes electric...

Availability: In Stock
VEX Item #: 276-2332 -

The VEX Accelerometer measures accelerations on three axis simultaneously. By measuring the acceleration of the robot, one can calculate the velocity of the robot, and more importantly the distance this robot has travelled. Accelerometers are also great for detecting collisions and determining if the robot is stopped or moving.The LIS344ALH capacitive micromachined accelerometer features signal conditioning, a 1-pole low pass filter, temperature compensation and g Select which allows for the...

VEX Robotics Bumper Switch Kit
Price: $12.99

Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2159 -

Enable your robot to perform certain functions when the bumper switch is activated by contact. Kit includes a pair of simple bumper switches custom built for the VEX Robotics Design System. Ruggedized Bumpers allow the switch to be triggered by large impacts without sustaining damage. Switches send a signal to the Microcontroller when they are triggered. These switches are great for signalling when a robot has hit an obstacle. Provide feedback to Microcontroller as events "happen". Rugged...

VEX Robotics Light Sensor Kit

Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2158 -

The light sensor uses a photocell that allows your robot to detect and react to light. With the light sensor, you can program a whole new range of capabilities to your robot. Design a simple tracker that follows the beam of a flashlight, or use a light sensor to help your robot to avoid getting stuck under furniture by making it steer away from shadows. You can even give your robot color vision by putting colored filters on different light sensors! A Programming Kit is needed to change the...

VEX Robotics Limit Switch Kit
Price: $12.99
View
Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2174 -

Get even more creative with your robots by limiting action in programmed behavior. Kit includes a pair of simple limit switch sensors custom built for the VEX Robotics Design System. Switches send a signal to the Microcontroller when that are triggered. These switches are great for signaling when a robot arm has reached the top or bottom of it's motion. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the Vex Controller. When the limit switch is not being pushed in, the sensor maintains a...

VEX Robotics Line Tracking Kit
Price: $39.99

Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2154 -

Program your robot to follow a black line over a white surface. This kit provides more design flexibility--you can also use it to program your robot for light sensing. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the Vex Controller. A line tracker mostly consists of an infrared light sensor and an infrared LED. It functions by illuminating a surface with infrared light; the sensor then picks up the reflected infrared radiation and, based on its intensity, determines the reflectivity of...

Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-1321 -

This product replaces the plastic cap on the back of a VEX 2-Wire Motor 393 with a quadrature encoder. Install this product and connect it to your Cortex Microcontroller via I2C to receive direct feedback from the motor. This encoder provides information on how fast the motor is going, how far it has traveled, and what direction it is moving.FeaturesIncreased feedback from your motors allows for more control.Communicates via I2C via included 4-wire Cable.Not compatible with the PIC...

VEX Robotics Optical Shaft Encoder Kit
Price: $19.99
View
Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2156 -

With the Quadrature Encoder's two output channels you can measure both the position and direction of rotation of a VEX shaft. This will allow you to calculate the speed of the shaft, as well as the distance it has traveled; these are very useful measurements for autonomous programming. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the VEX Controller to use the Quadrature Encoder. The optical shaft encoder is used to measure both relative position of and rotational distance traveled by a...

VEX Robotics Ultrasonic Range Finder Kit
Price: $29.99
View
Availability: Temporarily Unavailable
VEX Item #: 276-2155 -

An ultrasonic range finder sensor enables a robot to detect obstacles in its path by utilizing the propagation of high-frequency sound waves. The sensor emits a 40kHz sound wave, which bounces off a reflective surface and returns to the sensor. Then, using the amount of time it takes for the wave to return to the sensor, the distance to the object can be computed. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the Vex Controller. The sensor can be used to determine distances to objects....
