V5 Robot Brain
The V5 Robot Brain allows for "on the fly" device connection and port swapping. Legacy VEX EDR Sensors and Motors are also supported through eight 3-Wire ports.
Select from one of eight user downloaded programs, or run device diagnostics and configuration for real-time feedback, all right from the brain.
The V5 Robot Brain can be mounted in a variety of ways. The brain can be attached to the robot via four 8-32 mounting inserts on the bottom of the brain, or through detachable mounting flanges.
The V5 Robot Brain uses a Cortex A9 processor in tandem with a FPGA to create a device that is 15x faster than the its predecessor. The V5 Robot Brain also has expanded memory, and additional storage for user programs.
With its Monochrome LCD screen, the V5 Controller provides users with instant feedback from the Robot Brain. Programmers can send data and multilingual text to the screen for debugging and driver information.
The V5 Controller includes a programmable haptic feedback that can be triggered as events happen, such as intaking an object. The Controller's integrated 3.7v Li-ion battery can provide up to 10 hours of life on a single charge. With its USB port, the Controller can be charged in multiple ways such as a wall socket, laptop or USB power bank.
The V5 Robot Battery Li-Ion 1100mA
The V5 Robot Battery Li-Ion 1100mAh is the next evolution of the VEX EDR NiMh Battery. This Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery is equipped with circuitry and control to allow for higher sustained power and more reliable function. The V5 System as a whole is designed to produce identical motor performance at any battery charge level. This means that the same battery can be used for multiple competition matches or class periods before needing to be recharged. LiFePO4 batteries are proven to offer longer life cycles, and are safer than Lithium Ion batteries.
The V5 Robot Radio
The V5 Robot Radio allows your V5 Robot Brain to communicate with other devices such as the V5 Controller. All wireless communication to the V5 Robot Brain is done through the V5 Robot Radio, including competition control and wireless activation of VEX Coding Studio programs.
- Communicates via VEXnet 3 or Bluetooth®
- LED indicator for linked, scanning and active modes
- VEXnet 3 supports 500 simultaneous robot channels
