Parallax ActivityBot Encoder Kit

This kit equips the ActivityBot Robot to make consistent maneuvers, when paired with the ActivityBot Wheels and Tires. The encoder sensors mount next to the wheels, emitting infrared light and detecting reflections as the spokes pass by.

Key Features:

  • Modulated infrared sensors reduce interference from ambient light
  • Socketed encoder cables connect to the robot's breadboard or the servo headers
  • Mounting hardware and resistors included
Note: Each ActivityBot Robot Kit already includes the ActivityBot Encoder Kit. This kit is offered for replacement parts, or for your custom uses.
Technical Details:
  • Voltage requirements: 5 VDC
  • Current requirements: 60 mA
  • Communication: Active-high (Vcc = reflection detected)
  • Operating temperature range: +14 to +140 °F (-10 to +60 °C)

Kit Contents:

  • (2) IR reflective sensors
  • (2) Encoder cables
  • (2) 20 k-ohm 1/4 W resistors
  • (2) Encoder mounting brackets
  • (2) #4-40 x 1/4" black machine screws
