Relay for micro:bit (micro:bit Relay board)

The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is a solid-state (no moving parts) relay that allows an output of a micro:bit to turn things on and off.

A micro:bit can turn an LED on and off directly, but anything more powerful requires something like a relay or a transistor. Using a transistor to switch something on and off requires a shared ground connection with the micro:bit and a knowledge electronics that you or your students may not be ready for. The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is much easier to use, acting like a simple micro:bit controlled switch.

This relay can be used to switch low voltage devices such as light bulbs, a motor, a small heating element or even a string of 12V LED lighting. The voltage needs to be kept under 16V, but the relay will automatically protect itself against too much current.

FEATURES

  • Solid-sate relay (up to 2 Amps)
  • Active LED indicator
  • Resettable ‘polyfuse’ to protect against over-current

Getting Started

Connecting your micro:bit

The Relay requires just two connections to the micro:bit. One to GND (ground) and one to whatever pin is to be used to control the relay’s switching action.

When attaching the alligator clips to the micro:bit, make sure that the clips are perpendicular to the board so that they are not touching any of the neighbouring connectors on the micro:Bit edge connector.

Here’s an example of how you could wire up a MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit to turn an old fashioned light bulb on and off.

HEX File

The quickest way to try out your relay is to DOWNLOAD THIS HEX FILE >and then copy it onto your micro:bit. The program will turn the relay on and off once a second.

JavaScript Blocks Editor

Set the controlling pin to 1 and the relay contacts will close, set it to 0 and the contacts will open again. Its as simple as that. So, to make your relay turn on and off once a second, open the Blocks Editor, add a forever block and then the digital write blocks from the pins category and the pauses from the basic category.

MicroPython

Paste the following code into the Python window and then Download the file and copy it onto your your micro:bit.

from microbit import *

while True:
    pin0.write_digital(True)
    sleep(500)
    pin0.write_digital(False)
    sleep(500)



Analog Outputs

The latest MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit can do more than just switch things on and off. It can also be used with micro:bit analog outputs. Look closely at your Relay for micro:bit and is it has the version number v1ev (under the word ‘Board’) then it can be used with the ‘analog write’ block in the blocks editor or the ‘write_analog’ function in MicroPython. If your board has the version number v1e then it is not suitable for use with analog outputs – sorry you were unlucky to get one of the small batch of first boards to be sold.

The output of the Relay for micro:bit is not linear at low PWM and high PWM values as the following chart illustrates.

The y-axis shows the current in mA for a test load resistor supplied from a constant voltage source. The x-axis is the analog write value (0 to 1023). As you can see, there is a dead zone up to a analog output value of about 100, followed by a relatively good linear region right up to about 1000, after which the output effectively becomes ‘on’.

The tests were carried out at the default PWM frequency of 50Hz for the micro:bit. Lower frequency PWM is expected to produce more linear results.

The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is a solid-state (no moving parts) relay that allows an output of a micro:bit to turn things on and off.

Kitronik Motor Driver Board v2 for the micro:bit (micro:bit motor driver)

This motor driver board for the micro:bit allows two motors to be driven with forward, reverse, and stop control, and allows access to the other pins.

This board provides a simple way to add motor driving capability to a micro:bit. It allows two motors to be driven with full forward, reverse & stop control. It has terminal blocks to connect four input devices and a regulated 3V supply is fed in to the 80 way connector to power the inserted micro:bit.

In this new version, the pins from the micro:bit are now broken out to pads on the end of the motor driver board. These pads can either be soldered onto directly, or they are the correct spacing for our PCB pin headers (see image below for a close up of the new pads).

It is ideal for designs such as buggies (see below).

It includes an integrated edge connector slot for your micro:bit to easily slot into. It also features external connections to the buttons A and B inputs. This allows additional switches to be connected to the motor driver board and the state of these can then be read by the micro:bit.

Get up to speed quickly. Example Microsoft TouchDevelop code and example connections in the datasheet (below).

Features:

  • Drive 2 motors with full forward, reverse, and stop control
  • Terminal blocks for easy connection of motors and inputs
  • 4 inputs (2 analogue inputs and 2 provide external connections to buttons A and B as inputs)
  • Includes edge connector for the micro:bit to slot into
  • Provide regulated power to the micro:bit
  • Access the other micro:bit pins easily and conveniently

Contents:

  • 1 x edge connector motor driver board for the micro:bit

Dimensions:

  • Length: 67mm
  • Width: 61mm
  • Height: 18mm
