The main parts of the kit consist of a buzzer, an LED and five numbered buttons. It simulates the idea of a combination lock. There is no lock per say but an LED that lights up and a buzzer that buzzes when the right combination is entered. The students can modify the code and produce a variable code sequence. After the students master the project as presented they can develop any kind of application that uses one LED a buzzer and up to five buttons. Supply voltage is 4.5 ; 6V.
The programming environment for developing new programs or editing old ones is the "GENIE Design Studio". The software is revolutionary in its nature. Develop simple or complicated programs without having to write a single line of code. It is all visually done with the aid of flowcharts. The software is provided for free and you can download it at www.genieonline.com.
Requires a USB Cable. You will need to purchase at least one USB programming cable, #780080, (we recommend multiple cables) for your students to be able to download the code they develop to the Genie controllers. Kit.
