A true open hardware ,BeagleBone Series is credit-card-sized Linux computer that connects to the Internet and runs software such as Android 4.0 and Ubuntu. With plenty of I/O and processing power for real-time analysis provided by an AM335x 720MHz ARM® processor, BeagleBone can be complemented with cape plug-in boards to augment functionality. And this Grove - Grove Cape for BeagleBone Series is an expansion board for BeagleBone Series to work with abundant Grove resources. There are 6 ready Grove sockets on the board cevering functions like UART, I2C and ADC. And in this way, all Grove Modules are accessible for the BeagleBone board. Wanna make some projects with BeagleBone and need some sensors or display? This Grove - Grove Cape for BeagleBone Series can bring you this convenience.
Compared with the previous version, The Shield Bot V1.1 can use the usb port of PC to charge battery. And the charging efficiency is greatly improved after we optimize the circuit. And you can use the Arduino/Seeeduino Vin pin to fast charge.
Note: Compatible Arduino Board not included, try the Seeeduino.
The solar charger is a stackable shield to Arduino compatible platforms, enables adaptive battery power and act as energy harvester for in-field charging. You may use various batteries that has the voltage of 3.0V-4.2V to shift up for 5V output, or put on Li-ion battery and solar panel to form an autonomous sensor unit. The maximum current provided by the board can get up to 600mA. An usb connector is also useful to charge the battery.
Xadow UV Sensor is suitable for measuring the UV radiation in sunlight. It can detect the UV wavelength of 290 ~ 400 nm. The UV Sensor is outputting digital voltage value corresponding to UV light intensity. With the diagram of output voltage and UV, we can easy to know the current UV index. The Xadow UV Sensor can be powered by 3.3V. And it is compatible with Xadow system.
TinkerKit Hall Sensor module creates a voltage related to the magnetic field around the sensor. This can be used to detect distance from a nearby magnet. Hall sensors can also be used to detect the magnetic field induced in a wire or coil.
TinkerKit Tilt Sensor module can detect when it is at an angle. This module contains two contacts and a small metal ball. When the sensor is in its upright position, the ball bridges the two contacts, completing the circuit. When the board is tilted, the ball moves, and the circuit opens. When upright, the module outputs 5V and when it is tilted, it outputs 0V. When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you can expect to read a value of 1023 when in its upright position and 0 when it is titled.
This module is sensor. The connector is an output, which must be connected to one of the input connectors on the TinkerKit Shield.
