  • 5 Kg Micro Load Cell
    Good product
    Review by LO
    Not so accurate, but the best article to build a test setup in short time, thanks to the quick receiving and the low price.

  • PhidgetStepper Bipolar Stepper Motor Controller
    Great product!
    Review by Rob
    The PhidgetStepper Controller is a great product. We used three of them to control an auto microscope. We used their C# examples and had no problem incorporating into our code. Their service was excellent because we called them for help.

  • ISC3004 Optical Rotary Encoder
    Excellent rotary encoder
    Review by Digdug
    If you are looking for an incremental rotary encoder this is the one. Its very precise and super easy to use and small. Although the principle of operation is identical to an alps encoder you need a high performance interrupt driven library for maximum performance/accuracy. I used this one and it worked flawlessly: http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_libs_Encoder.html

  • 5 Kg Micro Load Cell
    Great Product
    Review by MPJ
    Received it quickly and works as described. Maybe not the most accurate load cell in the world, but great for simple projects and for the this price makes it even better.

New FlowBotics Apps for Phidgets Products

Posted on August 07, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Research, RobotShop, Software and Apps.

FlowBotics Studio is a powerful graphical programming software which helps you easily create programs which interface with external hardware. One important feature of FlowBotics Studio is that you can also create stand-alone executable (.exe) programs which can be installed and used by others who do not own FlowBotics Studio. RobotShop, along with DSP Robotics, have [...]

Programming DAQs using FlowBotics Studio & FlowStone

Posted on March 14, 2014

By Carl Owen & filled under Electronics, Software and Apps.

  In this tutorial we are going to cover Data Acquisition boards (or DAQ’s as they are better known) and how to program them using FlowBotics Studio which uses the FlowStone graphical programming language inside. Data acquisition devices form the basis of most robotics systems obtaining signals in and out of a system from external [...]

Mr. Trick, I am building an automated microscope using the Phidgets stepper motor controller and Hayden Kerk steppers. Have you found a good solution for backlash compensation? Have you written code to adjust or counter-move the motor?

... for playing a sequence of patterns. You can modify this logic and build your own patterns to do object tracking instead. You can also use a Phidgets 8/8/8 module for inputs instead of (or in addition to) the SSC-32: simply grab the module from the Toolbox, and then start connecting the module ...

... take this a step (or 2) further and add some sensors. I understand you can't use these directly with the SCC-32 and need another board such as the Phidgets Sensor Interface 8/8/8. Ultimately I want to have the arm motion track and be able to touch or pick up a slow moving object with either IR ...

You will need a relay to trigger the pump and you could indeed use a Phidgets system to read the sensors:RB-Phi-53 + RB-Phi-38. If you're not sure of any other parts to use, we'll be happy to help.

Hi Steve, Interesting project! There are a few ways to build such a system. If you're looking for a PC-based solution, we have the Phidgets PhidgetEncoder HighSpeed USB Encoder (RB-Phi-48) which you can plug via USB into your computer and use the Phidgets API to count the ticks (water flow ...

... what is the maximum sample of the USB-ISS. We will get back to you as soon as we get a response. Normally, we would recommend also considering a Phidgets I/O device as an alternative, however the Phidgets can only sample up to 1000 samples per second, which doesn't meet your needs.

Hi Kevin, Welcome to the forums. That Phidgets kit might not be what you need because it needs to remain plugged into a computer, and the board doesn't have an input where you can plug your toggle switch. However, if your switch is a two-position ...

Hi TEKnowLOGY, We don't think the Phidgets 0/16/16 will be sufficient for your needs. Have you chosen your thermal sensors? Most of them produce analog signals, which you wouldn't be able to read with the 0/16/16 because it doesn't have any ...
