  • Bluefruit EZ-Key Bluetooth HID Keyboard Controller v1.2
    EZ-Key with iPad and OnSong app ...
    Review by Claude
    Follow-up: Took less that 10 minutes to setup EZ-Key to work as a pedal controller for the song/music management app (OnSong) on the iPad. Now I can control the song/music scroll speed, and start/stop with foot pedals so I no longer have to stop strumming to advance/scroll the page. EZ-Key, an inexpensive way to DIY Bluetooth music pedals.

    5 out of 5 Stars *****

  • Lynxmotion PS2 Controller V3
    It's ok, I could only use it on the BAP28
    Review by Rob
    It's ok, but couldn't get it working on the BS2P so had to buy a BAP28 for it to work on my Bot Board 2 :(
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Unfortunately we do not have a setup or code to use this with the BS2P.

  • SeeedStudio 2-Channel 315MHz Wireless Relay Switch
    Great product for low price!
    Review by Jeremie
    The information provided by the manufacturer is a bit hard to understand for a novice, which I'm not.

    Anyway, the device works great and the range is surprinsingly good.

It is the first 3-in-1 robot in it’s class to empty itself automatically when it returns to it’s docking station. You therefore no longer need to empty the dust bin after every few cleaning cycles. The canister is much larger and [...]

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

The connections should be very straightforward with the red and black wire going to the power supply and hte black wires to the actuator.
The datasheet can be found here: www.firgelli.com/Uploads/RC-datasheet.pdf

Thanks for the quick response. was quite careful with the polarity from battery to remote. Solenoid is very small and requires very little current. have activated it from very small 12 volt phone charger for instance. At this point, if, indeed, the unit I purchased ...

It sounds like one of three things may have happened:
- Inverted polarity (positive and negative mixed up)
- The leads from the battery may have contacted each other, creating a short
- The current required by the actuator was too high for the unit

What current does the solenoid require?
