Backorders/Out of stock Items - we have changed things so you can order things that are out of stock.

We accept orders for things that are out of stock. However we will not ship you order to you until we can send it to you all at once. We will hold on to you order until everything on it is available.

  • If you want something urgently only order it if it is in stock
  • If you want something that is out of stock then order it and we will add it to our next monthly order from VEX.
  • If you mix in stock items with out of stock items your order will be held until everything is in stock.
  • We will need payment even though the backorder has not been delivered.

Description

Kit includes a pair of simple bumper switches custom built for the VEX Robotics Design System. Ruggedized Bumpers allow the switch to be triggered by large impacts without sustaining damage.

  • Provide feedback to Microcontroller as events "happen".
  • Rugged bumpers allow switch to be triggered without damage.
  • Useful as a trigger in a variety of applications.
  • Functionality is pre-programmed in the VEX Microcontroller.

Bumper Switch Sensor: The bumper sensor is a physical switch. It tells the robot whether the bumper on the front of the sensor is being pushed in or not.

Switch Info: SPST switch (“Single Pole, Single Throw”) configured for Normally Open behavior. 

Signal Behavior: When the switch is not being pushed in, the sensor maintains a digital HIGH signal on its sensor port. This High signal is coming from the Microcontroller. When an external force (like a collision or being pressed up against a wall) pushes the switch in, it changes its signal to a digital LOW until the switch is released. An unpressed switch is indistinguishable from an open port.
