Further Information

Would this PICAXE project board be able to operate a solanoid? I am trying to use a keypad to operate a solanoid for a moc safe i am building for my GCSE project, and was wondering if this would be able to power and operate a keypad and a solanoid. Thanks
Asked by: Jack Toleman
The board uses an ULN2803A Darlington transistor array IC (IC2 on the board). This can drive 0.5A per channel, so as long as your solenoid uses no more than 0.5A then you can connect it directly to the board without additional drive circuitry.

There are 8 inputs on the PICAXE chip so as long as your key pad is configured in a matrix then then there will be enough to go around. There is info on using a key pad in this ask-kitronik-using-a-pir-sensor-keypad-in-an-alarm video.

Can this board be supplied with over 6v? If so, what is the voltage range? Thanks a lot.
Asked by: Bradley Michael Collins

Hi Bradley, The voltage range which the PICAXE IC can handle is 4.5-5V. As such a voltage range between this suitable.

Is this board able to run a bi coloured LED?
Asked by: Connor Bowman

Yes you could use a Bi coloured LED, if it’s a 3 legged device this is very straight forward. If it’s a 2 legged device you would just need to sink the current through an NPN transistor to ground, with its gate connected to the LED output.
