The PICAXE Create System is based around a PICAXE-18M2 motherboard and various input/output modules which connect to the motherboard using patented 'micro-bric' connectors. These connectors, tightened and loosened with the supplied Allen key, are used to connect the various input/output modules to the 13 available motherboard connectors. When the bolts are tightened the plastic brics create both a strong mechanical and electrical joint, so that various circuit configurations can easily be built and adjusted by just swapping modules around - no soldering required to reconfigure the system!

Once the input/output modules have been configured as desired the motherboard can be programmed via any software that supports the PICAXE system.

The starter pack contains 18M2 motherboard, inputs pack, outputs pack, sensor pack and servo pack. Requires AXE027 cable for programming (not included, purchase separately).

  • PICAXE-18M2 Motherboard
  • Microbric connectors and Allen Key
  • Touch sensor input
  • Push switch input
  • Slide switch input
  • Infra-red Input
  • Terminal block generic connector
  • Infra-red output
  • Piezo output
  • LED output
  • Darlington transistor output (e.g. for buzzer)
  • L293D reversible motor driver output

The following input/output devices are not included but may be purchased separately and used with the supplied input/output PCB.

  • DS18B20 Temperature Sensor connector (purchase DS18B20 separately)
  • SRF005 Ultrasonic Range Finder connector (purchase SRF005 separately)
  • Serial LCD connector (purchase AXE133Y Serial OLED separately)
  • LDR (no longer included due to RoHS regulations)

The motherboard is supplied fully assembled, the input/output modules require soldering before first use (approx. 10 minutes). Once initially assembled (by the teacher) the students do not need to do any soldering to assemble, disassemble or reconfigure the system - all changes are made using the supplied Allen key.

All modules are also fully compatible with the BOT120 Microrobot, which uses the same microbric connectors. Naturally extra input/output modules are also available separately can also be shared between multiple systems.
