kidsbits blocks coding slide potentiometer sensor 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 connection and damage.
This sensor uses a high-quality sliding appliances for stable and reliable performance. Slide the potentiometer on the sensor can adjust the analog input value.
You are able to learn how to use the sensor with kidsbits control box in the below instruction.
2. Technical Parameters
- Interface: EASY plug
- Operating voltage: DC 5V
- Output signal: Analog signal
3. Wiring Diagram
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 shown below.
Click on the analog read block of keyes_kidsbits, you can directly use the corresponding module. Shown below.
5. Upload Code
Open the code folder we provided, or you are able to directly drag the code to Mixly window.
You can click the Code to check the C language.
6. Test Result
Hook it up and upload the code success, open the monitor and set the baud rate to 9600. You should see the analog value below.
When slide the potentiometer, the greater the analog value, the brighter the external LED is.
