Furacos Starter Kit Contents
  • Detail to Furacos Main board with 1 GVS cable
  • FURACOS is a platform oriented to the teaching of STEM disciplines focusing on Electronics, Robotics, Programming and, for its construction system, Mechanical.
     
    An Arduino Shield where you connect each ladrillo to control and power it. Combining the ladrillos on different projects can be made, like blinking a LED or a Mechatronic project like a moving robot controlled using Bluetooth. By using the GVS system the electronic you don’t need to solder or use external prototyping boards only plug the included wire and that’s all.

To learn there is a complete tutorial on our helping web: DiablecoS.com

Furacos Platform

  • Main Board

    Furacos Mainboard with connected power and USB wires
    It works as an Arduino Shield but the Arduino Nano also works. The main use is interconnect all the ladrillos but it also includes a power off circuit (with a switch) and also integrates a Bluetooth module.

  • Ladrillos

    Furacos Starter Kit Contents
    They are the input/output devices, they can be analog or digital and they are made with basic circuits. In all cases includes all necessary cables for use it.

  • Plastic Parts

    Plastic part connected to Mainboard (temporal image)
    Plastic construction system based on flat lines and panels and 3D printed parts (16 group of different pieces). All add up almost 50 individual pieces. The connection between the pieces is performed with reusable rivets.

Summary of available Ladrillos

  • LED

    LED Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    Tiny version (red LED) y and big one (green LED). They Represent the digital output and it is the simplest element. On kits you can find one of each size.

  • Push button

    Blue Button Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    With 2 color cap: blue and white. They represent the digital input. Comes one of each color in each kit.

  • Buzzer

    Buzzer Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    With this ladrillo you can ear simple beeps or nice melodies.

  • Potentiometer

    Potentiometer Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    A variable resistor intended to read as an analog signal. By turning the rotative actuator the resistor changes its value.

  • RGB

    RGB Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    A kid of LED that let create lots of colors using 3 basic colors: red, green and blue. You can turn on each LED individually.

  • Motor

    Motor Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    It is controlled as if a Continuous Rotation Servo, it needs same signal. But the power and speed are much higher than a normal servo. It have 4 fixed speeds, changed on a button.

  • Double Line Follower

    Double-Line Follower Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    It is designed to work with a common 1cm insulating tape. The “double” is because it uses 2 sensors to follow the line rightly.

  • Battery

    Power Ladrillo from Furacos Platform
    Is a ladrillo that needs no programming: only plug and use it. It charges with a microUSB wire and its output is 7.5V and it comes with a 2.1mm connector.

In every ladrillo there are as many batteries as signals needs (for example 1 on the potentiometer and 3 on the RGB).

  • Furacos Kits

    Furacos is sold in kits, being the ROBOT KIT the reference product then it contents all basic elements, motors and plastic parts.

    There are 3 KIT

    · Starter: Basic elements, ideal to start on Electronics.
    · Advanced: It adds motor and IR, this is the maker option.
    · Robot: It comes with plastics so you can build tons of fun.

    They are also available spare parts for sale individually.

  • Conectores GVS/SVG

    {{{{imgPEQUEÑA}}}Each digital or analog port will use a cable, in other words, if a component needs few ports it will use several cables. This way is a simple thing to understood the inner workings, for example a RGB LED which internally consists of 3 LEDs will have 3 wires to control it.

    Connexion is really easy because there is a color code on cable and board:

    • Signal = White
    • Positive = Red
    • Negative = Black
  • Example: RGB uses 3 GVS

    3 GVS/SVG wires connected to RGB Ladrillo

  • Features

    Remarkable data about Furacos kits:

    • Main board in Arduino Shield format.
    • With mainboard a compatible Arduino board is included.
    • Bluetooth module integrated on mainboard.
    • Power ladrillo with rechargeable battery greater than 2000mA.
    • Included wires: USB for the Arduino, charging USB, power jack and every ladrillo includes its GVS wires.
  • Helping you on teaching and usage

    It works with Arduino so you can use: Windows, Linux and MacOS
    It works, among others: Arduino IDE, Ardublock, mBlock, Bitbloq…
