kidsbits blocks coding button module is fully compatible with kidsbits control board and Lego building blocks.
You can easily connect it to kidsbits control board for communication using an RJ11 cable without worrying about wrong wiring and damage.
The kidsbits Push-button module is a tidy little design that lets you control a DC power source using an everyday tactile button.
The button module is a button signal, that is, output a digital voltage signal.
When the button is pressed, the signal end outputs LOW level signal; if release the button, the signal end keeps HIGH level.
This basic application module is widely applied to Arduino and other platforms.
2. Technical Parameters
- Interface: EASY plug

3. Hookup Guide
4. Import kidsbits Library
Begin with the Mixly blocks coding, you should first import the corresponding kidsbits library for those sensor modules.
Connect the control board to your computer using a USB cable.
Then open the Mixly blocks software 0.998, set the board to UNO R3, select your correct COM port. On the upper right corner you can switch the language.
After that, click Import, import the keyes-kidsbits library. Shown below.
If import custom library successfully, you should see the sensor module library.
Click on the digital read block of keyes_kidsbits, you can directly drag out the corresponding module to use.
5. Test Code
Open or directly drag the Mixly code of touch sensor to the Mixly window.
Check the C language code:
6. Test Result
Hook it up and upload the code success, if the button is pressed, D13 green indicator is turned on. Once release the button, LED is turned off.
