Phidgets

Phidgets are an easy to use set of building blocks for low cost sensing and control from your PC. Using the Universal Serial Bus (USB) as the basis for all Phidgets, the complexity is managed behind an easy to use and robust Application Programming Interface (API). Applications can be developed quickly in Visual Basic, VBA (Microsoft Access and Excel), LabView, Java, Delphi, C and C++.

Phidgets provide users with the underpinnings of an affordable and highly flexible system which can be harnessed via a PC to sense and manage a number of environmental elements, ultimately leading to the creation of smarter, more interactive robotic devices.

Because you can buy phidgets in the UK which take advantage of a USB interface, as well as offering compatibility across all of the major desktop operating systems, it is possible to deploy them in whichever configuration is best suited to the project on which you are working.

Phidgets can be sense everything from the ambient temperature in the room to the geographic location of the device thanks to GPS. And with a range of port interfaces and hubs available, multiple sensors designed to detect different variables can be included in the same system. There are even the most basic but important products available here, including mounting brackets so that everything can be held in place.

To control the phidgets the user will be able to develop applications within a wide range of popular programming platforms, including Visual Basic and C++.

Phidgets truly are the building blocks of robotics, achieving the impressive feat of allowing the interaction between and management of complicated physical systems through a PC interface. With an open source approach it is possible to build apps which are designed to make the most out of fidgets whether you are using Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.

While you can purchase these devices individually, there are also comprehensive interface kits to select, allowing you to get multiple components which can be combined to perform a cohesive function. And if all you need is cabling, then that is also on offer to ensure that you can put the finishing touches to a system that will work well and fulfill whatever purpose you have designed.

  1. Touch Keypad Phidget

    Touch Keypad Phidget

    Product Code: HIN1000_0
    Excl. VAT: £11.66 Incl. VAT: £13.99 As low as: £10.45

    This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. Use this array of capactive touch buttons as a unique way to control your Phidgets.

    For a seamless user input solution that differs from the ordinary pushbutton, try the Touch Keypad Phidget. It works like a smartphone's touchscreen, sensing the change in capacitance as you finger comes near. As such, you can place the Touch Keypad Phidget behind up to 3mm of glass or plastic, allowing you to enclose the hardware to make the panel child-friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

  2. Thumbstick Phidget

    Thumbstick Phidget

    Product Code: HIN1100_0
    Excl. VAT: £19.44 Incl. VAT: £23.33 As low as: £17.42

    Make a custom controller for your project with this thumbstick. Two-axis with a center pushbutton, it plugs into a VINT port.

    Does your project need a high degree of control from your users? The Thumbstick Phidget provides a familiar 2-axis thumbstick similar to those on a video game controller. The stick springs back to the neutral position when released. It can also be pressed down with a click, which will register in software and can be tied to a function in your software.

  3. 1002_0 Phidget Analog 4-Output

    1002_0 Phidget Analog 4-Output

    Product Code: 1002
    Excl. VAT: £87.48 Incl. VAT: £104.98 As low as: £73.49
    The 1002_0 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).

    The board is not isolated and all 4 channels share a common ground.

    All the power is supplied by the USB bus.

  6. 1012_2B Phidget Interface 0/16/16

    1012_2B Phidget Interface 0/16/16

    Product Code: 1012
    Excl. VAT: £97.20 Incl. VAT: £116.64 As low as: £81.65

    Use it to check the state of switches and push buttons, and/or to switch relays, solenoids, and LEDs.

    The Digital Inputs are activated by an external voltage source, triggering on a wide voltage range: 4 to 30VDC. They provide built-in filtering, to eliminate false triggering from electrical noise. They can be used to convey the state of on/off devices, such as push buttons, limit switches, relays.
