fischertechnik ROBO TX ElectroPneumatic

The subjects of electro-pneumatics and vacuum technology are demonstrated clearly with the aid of fascinating models such as the fischertechnik ROBO TX ElectroPneumatic, color sorting robot for colored parts, ball obstacle course and pinball machine. The new, powerful and compact compressor guarantees a reliable supply of compressed air to the models. The electro-magnetic valves included allow remote c ontrol of the models with a PC.

The fischertechnik ROBO TX ElectroPneumatic Set contains 400 components (including compressor, miniature motor, 2x solenoid valves, optical color sensor, vacuum exhauster, 3x cylinders with spring, 2x photo-transistors, 2x lens tip lamps, and 11 fl ex-rails) for building 4 functional models. Also includes related instructional material on CD.

REQUIRES: ROBO TX Controller, ROBO Pro Software and either Accu Set or Energy Set (each sold separately).

  1. A Good Kit for a Reasonable Price

    by on

    I bought this kit as a possible supplement to the STEM 1 and STEM 2 Elementary School kits for an after school program at a local school. I built the color sorting model. It took me about 12 hours to build, trying to be careful as I went along. It took a couple of additional hours to measure and cut and mount the electrical plugs on the wires. As with many fischertechnik kits this one requires some precision. Since this was my first experience with electropneumatics, I wasn't quite sure about the compressor and solenoid switches. I also had not encountered the counter switch in earlier kits. I just pressed ahead with the construction. When I finally got everything assembled and plugged it in, the motor seemed not to be working. This turned out to be due to the gear box not being fully engaged with the motor. The final issue was the color sorter which was selecting blue for all the pucks. This was due to the need for the puck to completely cover the hole in the black box. Fortunately, the box can be easily slid around on its mounts until the crane places the puck over the center of the hole. When this was done all worked as expected. This was a great project, and I suspect the flipper project will be even more satisfying.
