Outputs

 


Output modules control the outside using information fed from the picXplorer controller.  They have a three way connector on their left hand side and are identified by letters.  Use the following chooser chart to identify suitable modules for your application.

Function

Description

A

 

 

Bi-colour LED

 

An LED that is driven by two outputs. It can produce two colours depending on which output is made high (the other is made low)

B

RGB LED

An LED that can produce a number of different colours depending on the combination or Red, Green and blue that is switched on.  It is driven by three outputs.

C

Tri-colour LED

An LED that can produce three colours.  It is driven by two outputs.  The colour is set according to which output is high.  The third colour is produced by switching both outputs high.

D

 

 

Darlington driver

 

A driver that uses a darlington transistor as its output device.  It can supply up to 1A and is suitable for controlling DC motors

E

 

 

Octal LED

 

A grasp of 8 LEDs each connected to its own output

F

 

7-segment display

 

A 7-segment display with each segment connected to its own output.  Displaying a particular number requires the appropriate pattern of outputs to be switched on.

G

LED sm

LED

A single LED connected to a single output

H

Piezo sounder

A piezo sounder element that produces sound when the output is switched on and off at the required frequency.

I

 

 

NPN transistor driver

 

A driver that uses a small signal transistor.  It is suitable for driving up to 100mA

J

 

 

Siren

 

A loud siren for alarm systems.  The output only needs to be switched on to make the siren sound (it has its own sound generating circuit inside)

K

 

 

Servo motor connector

 

Connected for connecting servo motors to an output

L

JYK cable connector

An adapter for connecting JYK connectors to an output

M

 

IR transmitter sm

Infra-red transmitter

 

An infra-red LED and driver for transmitting infra-red signals (to emulate TV remote controls)

N

MOSFET driver

A high power driver that uses a power MOSFET to supply up to 5A of current

O

 

Relay sm

c/o relay

 

A driver that uses a change over relay to switch up to 1A.

P

Octal driver

A driver that connects to 8 outputs to supply up to up to 200mA for each output

Q

 

 

Adapter

 

 

R

Speaker

Miniature speaker for producing reasonable quality sound when the output is driven by an appropriate signal.

S

Counter/7-segment display

A 7-segment display connected to a counter driver.  It is counts pulses from an output. A second output is used to reset the count to zero.  These units can be chained together to count larger numbers

T

Matrix keypad
