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 Phidgets whether you are using Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.

Have a look at the new VINT system. Everything is backwards compatible and we still support all direct-to-USB Phidgets. A VINT Hub is a Phidget that has a number of VINT ports than can be used to connect to other Phidgets, or directly to switches, LEDs or sensors. The main advantages of VINT are versatility, modularity, connectivity and stability.

  1. VINT Hub Phidget

    VINT Hub Phidget

    Product Code: HUB0000_0
    Excl. VAT: £29.16 Incl. VAT: £34.99 As low as: £24.49

    With a VINT Hub Phidget, you can interface six devices to your computer through a single USB port. Each VINT port can perform one of four roles: Communicating with an intelligent VINT Device, reading a 0-5V Voltage or ratiometric sensor, acting as a digital output, or reading switches as a digital input. Each port has a power and ground pin, so you can also use the ports to gain access to the USB voltage supply directly.

    Plug in one of our many VINT-enabled Phidgets that perform a wide variety of functions. Control motors and LEDs, measure temperature or motion, or build a large scale system with many inputs and outputs.

    Accelerometer Phidget

    Product Code: MOT1100_0
    Excl. VAT: £19.44 Incl. VAT: £23.33 As low as: £16.33

    Measure acceleration up to ±8g in each axis with the 3-Axis Accelerometer Phidget. Connects to a VINT port. Accelerometers are the quintessential motion sensor, from robotics to motion capture. The Accelerometer Phidget measures up to ±8g (or 78.5 m/s²) in each axis, which is more than you'll ever produce in most ordinary applications. The MOT1100 connects to a port on a VINT Hub.

  6. Touch Wheel Phidget top view

    Touch Wheel Phidget

    Product Code: HIN1001_0
    Excl. VAT: £14.58 Incl. VAT: £17.50 As low as: £12.25

    Use this capacitive touch wheel and buttons as an intuitive user interface to your Phidgets system.

    Need a user-friendly control panel for your Phidgets project? Look no further than the Touch Wheel Phidget. This user interface board uses capacitive touch technology, similar to the touchscreen on a smartphone. Capacitive touch sensors such as this can detect a touch through a piece of glass or plastic of up to 3mm thick, so you can hide this board inside an enclosure or behind a panel. The HIN1001 connects to a port on a VINT Hub.

  7. Quadrature Encoder Phidget

    Quadrature Encoder Phidget

    Product Code: ENC1000_0
    Excl. VAT: £14.58 Incl. VAT: £17.50 As low as: £12.25

    Interface a quadrature encoder at speeds of up to 100,000 quadrature cycles per second to a port on your VINT Hub.

    A quadrature encoder is the most commonly used feedback device for a DC or stepper motor. With an encoder, you can keep track of how far your motor has turned, which then allows you to control the position and velocity in your code. Whether you want to build a robot whose wheels can respond to uneven terrain or measure the speed of a bicycle, you'll need an encoder and this adapter. The ENC1000 connects to a port on a VINT Hub.
