As you are probably aware, Studica offers a great variety of software, STEM education solutions, robotics, and technology products. We have also developed great partnerships with WorldSkills and FIRST. For over 30 years, our focus has been uniting technology with education. For instance, we offer National Instruments products for students and faculty with academic discounts and we also offer National Instruments classroom solutions for high schools. However, Studica is more than just a reseller. We are also a developer and manufacturer with products like the WorldSkills Mobile Robotics Competition Collection, the Studica Motor Driver and Sensor Adapter for NI myRIO and the mySTEM™ Project Board for NI myDAQ. Take a moment to learn how these unique tools can help students and teachers get more out of their existing NI devices.

Motor Drive and Sensor Adaptor for NI myRIO

Studica’s new accessory for NI myRIO allows you to easily connect and control two DC motors and three servos. Known as MXP-MD2, this is the next-generation of high-performance Motor Controller Driver Adapters that offers many added features. Perfect for robot projects because it is ready to use, offers high current output, and several protection features. A variety of I/O options are part of the design to allow easy interfacing with several different sensors. This is an excellent way to get even more out of your NI myRIO. It is also an excellent tool for preparing for robotics competitions like the WorldSkills Mobile Robotics Competition and World Robotics Olympiad.

mySTEM Project Board for NI myDAQ

More than just a motor driver and accessory, this is actually a miniSystem that was designed to be used in conjunction with the NI myDAQ and LabVIEW. The mySTEM Project Board, also known as the Motor Driver & Protoboard for myDAQ/myRIO, allows the exploration of a wider range of solutions and supports creativity. Teach students to create and design unique solutions to their design problems. It offers the ability to connect your myDAQ to high-current, large output devices. By minimizing wiring needed, you can focus on the logic of control and signal processing.  The mySTEM Project Board is an affordable solution that expands the capabilities of the myDAQ by transforming it into a programmable action controller that allows you to control four separate output channels.

In addition to that, with your mySTEM Project Board purchase, you will also receive a mySTEM Quick Start Guide and get information on how to download the Introductory Curriculum for the mySTEM Project Board. This curriculum was prepared by esteemed Educator, Tom White. It covers sequential & combinational logic, discusses analog & digital sensors, the decision process, and instructs on how to connect sensors. The curriculum also describes the process of designing programs and explains how to turn state machine diagrams & flowcharts into LabVIEW programming to allow your students to control systems. Plus, we’ve put together some great blog articles and tutorials for the mySTEM Project Board. Some popular articles: Introduce Controls Education with NI myDAQ –  How to Create a Simple Circuit with mySTEM Project Board – Detecting Light Levels with the mySTEM for NI myDAQ – and – Wiring an Electric Motor with the mySTEM for NI myDAQ.
