Phidgets is just fun to say, Phidgets! Phidgets! Phidgets! The Phidget people of the Phidget company have made more Phidgets.
How hot is your baby? The 1045 is an intelligent non-contact temperature sensor with a 10° field of view and a USB interface for easy connection to your computer. It measures the temperature of objects placed within its cone of detection.
Gimme some juice! The PhidgetAnalog 4-Output Produces a voltage over -10V to +10V. This voltage will be asserted up to +-20mA. An error will be reported when this current is exceeded, and the voltage the customer is getting is no longer accurate. The voltage is produced with 12 bit resolution (4.8mV).
Double your pleasure. The SSR Board is safe to use with sensitive control devices like microprocessors, and will not damage a Phidget device or your PC. Optoisolation between the control inputs and outputs of the SSR in the form of a GaAs LED paired with a set of optically-controlled MOSFETs provides protection from output to input. An on-board 47V bidirectional transorb across the relay output protects the board from static electricity and surges from inductive loads.
Can you hear me now? (Really, what other quip did you think we would use here?) The Phidget Sound Sensor can be used to detect sounds, and approximate how loud the sound is. The 1133 measures sound across a very wide range, with a frequency range of 100Hz to 8kHz and pressure level from 50dB to 100dB.
- Controls direction, velocity and acceleration of one DC Motor
- Requires external Power Supply (9 to 28VDC)
- Built-in 2 digital inputs, 2 analog inputs, 1 encoder input
- Protected against over-current, over-voltage, and over-temperature
- Connects directly to a computer’s USB Port
You aren’t a serious hacker/builder/maker until you have burned out a few USB ports. We’ve been there too many times to count. That sudden moment of, “Wait, what? Why did everything just stop working?” The USB Isolator is designed to protect your PC from harmful voltage that can flow from devices attached to your PC through the USB cable. The isolator is inserted between the Phidgets board and your PC.
Do you get lost often? Have your robots inherited this trait from their master? The Phidget GPS provides the longitude and latitude of the board’s position in signed decimal degree format. The position accuracy (best case) is 2.5m CEP (Circular Error of Probability).
The 1040 also provides altitude, heading and velocity as well as the time and date. It will also let you know when it has a satellite fix.
The PhidgetGPS has a 3V rechargeable lithium battery to provide “hot starts” by remembering its previous positions. With a live battery, the 1040 can perform a signal re-acquisition in less than 1 second. The battery provides up to 1 month of operation before having to be recharged. Recharging an empty battery takes 24 hours.
