TRIS10 ROBOTICSSensors, breakout boards and parts for robotics

TRIS10 Robotics began operating over four years ago and has made thousands of FindBall sensors available to robotics teams around the world. It's been amazingly fun and great to see the success of the teams in using the equipment to make fantastic robots but it is now time for new electronics companies to develop innovative products and push educational robotics forward. As such, we have begun retiring all of the products and as of today, have six FindBall NXT sensors left and two FindBall Open sensors remaining. If you're interested in buying spares or trying out the sensors before it's too late, please order soon as these are likely to go within a few days. We unfortunately have no other products left - not even demo models - but are happy to share designs, tips and suggestions to anyone who's interested. Please contact us at and we'll send through anything we can. Thank you for a great journey!

After three years and thousands of FindBall sensors now being used around the world, it was time that we refreshed the products available and made space for new products later this year.

When TRIS10 robotics started, the aim was, and still is, to provide products not readily available elsewhere, especially in the educational robotics market. As such, products such as the TrackMotion IMU sensor, KickBall devices and the ProtectCircuit power supply no longer align with this aim - compared to in 2014, IMUs are readily available, easy to use, and no longer break the bank. By no longer actively selling these products, we can focus on developing new and exciting products in 2017. We'll have more information on these new products later this year.

We'd like to thank all of our customers for their ongoing support since TRIS10 ROBOTICS started. We've shipped to users across the world - from Austria to more…

It has taken longer than expected, but we are pleased to announce we now have a greater range of mini blade fuses available: both the 3A and 7.5A versions are now available. Like all of our ProtectCircuit fuses, they light up if the fuse blows, so you can easily see when something goes wrong.

The 10cm ConnectNXT cables - they're red!

When working with the NXT and EV3 platforms, one of our biggest annoyances was the long NXT/EV3 cables that got in the way. We found that 10cm and 15cm cables were the ideal lengths for most robots, so we made them. We now have packs of 5 and packs of 20 of each length available for sale.

Unlike some other cables available, these NXT/EV3 cables have proper insulation, and in keeping with the brand, they're even red! They also have the correct colour coding of each wire and high quality connectors, making them durable and easy to use.
