Q:
Hello, With the Robot all in one board, Iam planning on an application using 4+ servos, 2 motors and I/O sensors which will consume AA batteries quite quickly. So as an alternative is the there a 6v, 9v or 10v recommended power adopter with you want to use an dc a power supply?
Also if you want to control the speed of the servo’s what MakeCode function do you use?
Thanks Steve
Asked by: Steven Carter
A:
Hi there,

We sell a 5V Power supply that can provide upto 2.5A to the board.

You could use the servo write function to control speed. The closer to 0 or 180 you servo write the faster the servo will turn and the closer to 90 the slower the servo will turn.

Best Regards

Q:
Hello, have you on any information of what sensors (examples which you sell?) can be added to the robotic board Inputs and connections?

Also examine what outputs device e options there are other than motors/ servors, stepper motors?

Also more information like linking the robot card to Kitronik Board with perhaps a display screen?

Many Thanks Steve
Asked by: Steven Carter
A:
Hi Steve,

Thank you for your question, you could plug our LCD display screen directly into the card socket for the micro:bit if you attach the micro:bit to the LCD and plug it down into the boards.

https://www.kitronik.co.uk/5650-view-text32-lcd-screen-for-the-bbc-micro-bit.html

If the micro:bit is facing the link header you can run any components that will run on 3.3V and are not drawing more than 90mA so you can easily attach sensors to that side of the board or LEDs.

On any of our boards with a link header you can also solder a pin strip to them and connect the boards that way and you should be able to ger readings or out puts from those boards. For example our RTC board to add a clock, our Klimate board for more humidity sensors and so on.

Q:
Hello, Is it possible to use brushless motors with the board? Usually these need their own controller. Or do have to connect the controller to the board in order to use a brushless motor? Regards and thanks!
Asked by: Frits
A:
Hi Frits,

Thank you for your question you could not use a brush less motor as standard with these as you say you would need to connect the controller to the servo pin to use the motor.

Q:
Hello, Is there a version of the board (or add-on) where the microbit is in line with the board? like with the Edge Connector Breakout Board?
I would like to put the all-in-one board in a limited space, which probably won't fit because the ege connector puts the microbit at a right angle to the board.
Looking forward to your answer! Thanks in advance.
Asked by: Frits
A:
Hi Frits,

Thank you for your question, the closest product we have like that is our klip motor driver on the link below. It's not exactly the same but hopefully should be close enough.

Q:
Hello, I cant find the coding blocks for this robotics board. I looked for extensions in the microbit online program and added in the motor driver extension....unfortunately this did not contain options for programming motor 3 and 4 and the servo motors. I did not have any success running a motor 1 or 2 using the extension I mentioned previously. Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you in advance.
Asked by: paul mccarthy
A:
HI Paul,

Thank you for your question, from what you have said you have added the motor driver expansion and what you need is the kitronik-robotics-board expansion. The motor driver expansion is for our motor driver board and only has two motors it can run whereas the robotics board can control a lot more and needs separate code.

Q:
Hi,
I am wondering how to use PWM with Robotics board ? There is a code for Motor board bit but unable to find one for Robotics.
I wanted to control Lego Servo motor rotation angle steps and for that it needs PWM. WIth current block code it could only do -180, 0 and 180 but not steps in between. If I change motor power between 0 and 100, servo doesn't step properly. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
Asked by: Nadeem Shahbaz
A:
Hi Nadeem,

Thank you for your question, unfortunately we are not sure on that. It's hard to say what the problem is without the exact technical specs because I suspect that it is not just a servo in there. We have a couple of simple Lego motors but have not tried the robotics board with a Lego Servo motor I'm afraid.

Q:
How much power is outputted to the motors, 3V or maybe more? I plan to use multiple motors but one at a time, but I want to know first, so I could buy higher quality motors that could use a higher output, or cheaper one that only use 3V.
Asked by: Julio Ocampo
A:
Hi Julio,

Thank you for your question, it depends on how much power you supply to the board. You can supply the board with between 3V and 10.8V safely and we recommend supplying 6V-10.8V. The micro:bit will be supplied a regulated 3.3V and the motors will be supplied the value powering the board. So if you supplied the board with a 6V supply the motors and servos would receive 6V.

Best Regards

Q:
Hi, Is it possible to link inputs onto this board - eg buttons, distance sensors? Allowing the board to respond to external factors?
Asked by: David
A:
Hi David,

Thank you for your email, it is indeed, there are a series of breakouts down the back of the board. If the micro:bit is plugged in facing them then you can access all of the normal pins and functionality from there while still controlling the motors / servos.

Q:
Can the micro:bit be plugged into a PC over USB while the Robitics Board is hooked up to external power? This would be convenient for debugging code via REPL.
Asked by: Rich Williams
A:
Hi Rich,

Thank you for your message, it can be plugged into both at the same time, that is not a problem.

Q:
Hi,
Is it possible to power this board with a USB cable (5V) rather than off 4xAA batteries?
I'm not sure if the current draw would be too much for a USB cable or host (PC) to handle? Or whether it could work with a "dumb" USB Wall adaptor as host?
Any guidance would be appreciated. We're trying to make the powering a bit more universal regarding powering/avoiding having to change/charge batteries.
Thanks,
Tim
Asked by: Tim Parker
A:
Hi Tim,

Thank you for your question, not a problem at all. You could in theory run a motor through this with a USB.

However we tend to recommend about 6V to be used to power the board and a USB cable supplies about 5V so you might see a drop in power of some of your motors. I would also reccomend against trying to draw the power through a USB attached to a PC. Most USB ports on a PC are only rated to 200mA and you can fry the USB ports if you draw too much. Even single motors can easily draw more than this which is why we do not recommend USBs but if you were to use it with a wall adaptor that should be fine provided the wall adaptor is appropriately rated.

Best Regards

Q:
Hi, can I wire up a five wire stepper to this board, e.g. a 28BYJ-48? Where would each of the five wires go? Thanks.
Asked by: Pablo
A:
Hi Pablo,

Thank you for this question, this board can run 4 motors at once. The wires from each would go into the line of four terminal blocks on the opposite side of the board to the micro:bit.

Q:
This looks like it might be the ideal board to drive 9V LEGO power function motors and servos. Do you know if anyone has tried this?
Asked by: Fraser Stephens
A:
HI Fraser,

Thank you for your email, I am not aware of anyone who has tried this but the rating for those style motors is within the range these boards can handle.

You would just need to make sure you kept the current draw below 10A for the motors and servos you were running.

Best Regards

Cullen

Q:
Are there any instructional resources / project instructions etc that come with this kit? Thanks
Asked by: RReeves
A:
Hi, The board isn't supplied with instructions, however the datasheet shows how the board should be used and also gives an example block of code on page 4. We also have some custom blocks available for this board to make it even easier to use, simply add these in the Makecode via the 'Add a Package' function.
