Boe-Bot Refresher Packs

The Boe-Bot Refresher Pack provides spare parts. It's is the same bag of electronic parts that ships with brand new Boe-Bot Robot kits. Every sensor, wire, capacitor, resistor, LED, phototransistor and piezospeaker for each book activity is included in this pack. (Continuous rotation servo motors not included.) Note: This pack can be used to ensure that each successive student taking a class with the Boe-Bot robot has all the components necessary to build the breadboard circuits shown in the Robotics with the Boe-Bot text. Tip: Pictures of your Boe-Bot robot's electronic and mechanical parts along with names, part numbers and quantities are on the last page of the Robotics with the Boe-Bot text.

Ping Sensor for Boe-Bot with Bracket

Parallax's PING)))™ ultrasonic sensor with servo motor and mounting bracket for Boe-Bot provides a very low-cost and easy method of distance measurement. This sensor is perfect for any number of applications that require you to perform measurements between moving or stationary objects. Naturally, robotics applications are very popular but you'll also find this product to be useful in security systems or as an infrared replacement if so desired. You will definitely appreciate the activity status LED and the economic use of just one I/O pin.The Ping sensor measures distance using sonar; an ultrasonic (well above human hearing) pulse is transmitted from the unit and distance-to-target is determined by measuring the time required for the echo return. Output from the PING))) sensor is a variable-width pulse that corresponds to the distance to the target.Interfacing to the BASIC Stamp and Javelin Stamp microcontrollers is a snap: a single (shared) I/O pin is use to trigger the Ping sensor and "listen" for the echo return pulse. And the  intelligent trigger hold-off allows the PING)))™ to work with the BS1! An onboard three-pin header allows the PING))) to be plugged into a solderless breadboard (on a Boe-Bot, for example), and to be connected to its host through a standard three-pin servo extension cable.


  • Provides precise, non-contact distance measurements within a 2 cm to 3 m range
  • Simple pulse in/pulse out communication
  • Burst indicator LED shows measurement in progress
  • 20 mA power consumption
  • Narrow acceptance angle
  • 3-pin header makes it easy to connect using a servo extension cable, no soldering required

Key Specifications:

  • Power requirements: +5 VDC
  • Communication: Positive TTL pulse
  • Dimensions: 0.81 x 1.8 x 0.6 in (22 x 46 x 16 mm)
  • Operating temp range: +32 to +158 °F (0 to +70 °C)
