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

Avoid obstacles and measure distances with the ultrasonic range finder. Device emits a high-frequency sound wave that alerts the robot to things in its path. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the VEX Controller.

  • Measure distances from 1.5in to 115in.
  • Avoid obstacles.
  • Create more autonomous function.

 

Function: An ultrasonic range finder sensor enables a robot to detect obstacles in its path by utilizing the propagation of high-frequency sound waves. The sensor emits a 40kHz sound wave, which bounces off a reflective surface and returns to the sensor. Then, using the amount of time it takes for the wave to return to the sensor, the distance to the object can be computed.

Application: The sensor can be used to determine distances to objects. It can be used as a tool to determine if any objects are in the robot’s path at all. To increase the sensing range, the sensor can be mounted to a servo to allow it to rotate.
