The PICAXE Create System is based around a PICAXE-18M2 Motherboard and various input/output modules which connect to the motherboard using patented 'micro-bric' connectors. These connectors, tightened and loosened with the supplied Allen key, are used to connect the various input/output modules to the 13 available motherboard connectors. When the bolts are tightened the plastic brics create both a strong mechanical and electrical joint, so that various circuit configurations can easily be built and adjusted by just swapping modules around - no soldering required to reconfigure the system!
Once the input/output modules have been configured as desired the motherboard can be programmed via any software that supports the PICAXE system such as Programming Editor or Logicator.
The starter pack contains:
- PICAXE-18M2 Motherboard
- Microbric connectors and Allen Key
- Touch sensor input
- Push switch input
- Slide switch input
- DS18B20 Temperature Sensor input
- LDR input
- Infra-red Input
- Terminal block generic connector
- Infra-red output
- Piezo output
- LED output
- Darlington transistor output (e.g. for buzzer)
- L293D reversible motor driver output
- Servo Output connector (purchase GBX013 servo separately)
- SRF005 Ultrasonic Range Finder connector (purchase SRF005 separately)
- Serial LCD connector (purchase AXE133 Serial LCD or AXE133Y Serial OLED separately)
The motherboard is supplied fully assembled, the input/output modules require soldering before first use. Once initially assembled (by the teacher) the students do not need to do any soldering to assemble, disassemble or reconfigure the system - all changes are made using the supplied Allen key.
All modules are also fully compatible with the BOT120 Microrobot, which uses the same microbric connectors. Naturally input/output modules can also be shared between multiple systems.
