MicrobeMeter

Measure growth rates of microbes

MicrobeMeter is a simple, yet highly functional photometer. It is designed for high-resolution temporal monitoring of microbial growth. It can accommodate microbes grown with or without oxygen (aerobic and anaerobic cultures), and allows automated, continuous collection of data through a wireless connection. read more

Measure-It

Just measure

Measure-It is a highly versatile signal amplifier shield for Arduino Mega. It implements four low-noise, high-gain chopper stabilised operational amplifiers, which are optimised for low voltage signal generating sensors (e.g, photodiodes). It allows users to create their own high-precision scientific-grade measurement devices.

Ideal for high-precision wireless measurement projects.

  • Compatible with Arduino Mega
  • Four-channel signal amplifier
  • OpAmp (LTC1053CN) gain: 10.2M
  • Operating voltage: 5V DC
  • Bluetooth data communication via HC-06
  • On-board thermometer
  • Six regulated output channels (e.g. for LEDs)
  • Available as through-hole PCB (alone or with components)
  • Open-source circuit
  • Open-source noise-reducing measurement program

Odigo

Sense & ACT

Odigo is a highly versatile signal amplifier shield for Arduino Mega. It implements four low-noise, high-gain chopper stabilised operational amplifiers, which are optimised for low voltage signal generating sensors (e.g, photodiodes). It also consists of motor drivers for controlling 6 motors or 3 stepper motors. These features make Odigo ideal for wireless measurement and feedback control projects that require high-precision, and low/high-power output channels for LEDs, motors, heating elements, etc..

Ideal for wireless measurement and feedback control projects that require high-precision and low/high-power output channels for LEDs, motors, heating elements, etc. 
  • Amplifier gain: 10.2M
  • Operating voltage: 2.5-11V DC (used only for the motor drivers, rest of the shield uses power supply from the Arduino Mega)
  • Motor drivers (DRV8835) by Texas Instr.
  • Motor driver max amperage: 1.2A per channel
  • Motor drivers are protected using an onboard resettable fuse
  • Bluetooth 4.0 data communication (RN4871 by Microchip Tech.)
  • Onboard ports for:
    • Motor drivers (6 motors or 3 stepper motors)
    • 5 x regulated output channels (e.g. for LEDs) – 560Ω built-in resistance
    • 4 x regulated output channels (e.g. for LEDs) – 220Ω built-in resistance
    • 1 digital output/input channel
    • 6 x analogue input channels (4 with operational amplifier, 2 without)
    • 1 x Bluetooth connection indicator
    • 1 x 5V DC outlet
